Sobro Coffee TableFurniture is something that is part of our daily lives that has yet to adapt to the technological changes of our connected world. Sobro is looking to change that with their innovative take on the coffee table. The minimal white and black coffee table design features Bluetooth speakers, a refrigerator drawer and various power outlets. I personally feel this is just the beginning for the company, as I can see other common pieces of furniture getting the same type of technological update.3. Nest Smart Home devicesYou may know Nest from their innovative power saving solution to the thermostat; however, the company has grown and now wants to allow you to control other parts of your home. Nest has launched a plethora of indoor and outdoor security cameras that are all available at the touch of your fingertips.
