A robotic lawnmower, an oven that knows what it’s cooking and home LED lights that double as Bluetooth speakers are among tech on display at this weekend’s Novi Home Show.
The Oct. 13-15 show at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi includes demonstrations of the self-mowing lawnmower and household technology as well as exhibits for home-improvement products, landscaping and decorating.
The Ohmni robot is a remote-controlled video chat device that makes it possible for someone connecting via video chat to appear on a screen and move around. It’s maneuverable with a computer or smartphone.
“This is one of the first of the personal robots to hit the market,” Boyce Thompson, author of “The New, New Home,” who will be at the show with the equipment said. “It’s called a tele-presence robot. You can call it from your phone or computer. Your face shows up. And it’s like you’re there. So you can move the robot around the house. if you’re traveling and the family’s having dinner, you can roll the robot up to the table.”
Thompson also will show people the Husqvarna smartphone-controlled, electric-powered automated lawnmower that “works much like a robot vacuum cleaner, but for your yard,” according to a news release.
And the June counter-top oven “recognizes what you placed inside and adjusts time and temperature accordingly and perfectly,” according to the release.
The show also includes manufactured homes ranging from 746 to 2112 square feet and costing $19,900-$107,000.
The show runs till 8 p.m. today, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at 46100 Grand River Avenue in Novi. Admission is $10 for ages 13 and over, $9 for 55 and over, and children 12 and under get in free.
