Panasonic rolls out cool smart home concept

Paul Ridden for New Atlas:  There was a time when appliances in our homes would just quietly get on with their allotted tasks, but smart tech is changing that. We're now having conversations with speakers, waking up to alarm clocks that double as personal assistants and controlling white goods with an app. Panasonic is at IFA in Berlin this week showing off a potential new addition to the smart home, a fridge that wanders over to the dinner table or sofa on command to deliver chilled nibbles or drinks precisely when they're needed.
