Part of our challenge is to identify what (if anything) one of these devices might want to 'say' to the others and why the others would care to 'listen'."
"Another remote control in the bedroom is built into a custom console mounted on the under side of the headboard. The entire console is illuminated with glowing LEDs for use in the dark. In addition to the X-10 control, there is a clock, security control panel, and an indoor/outdoor thermometer."

Manufacturers also need standards before making the large investments necessary for low cost production. An ideal standard will allow developers to differentiate their products with features and include the flexibility to evolve over time according to the needs of the market."
"One hot item that I think that you will be able to get for a good price is a DVD player. As a fairly new technology, this is its first Christmas. Companies like Sony, Pioneer, Toshiba, Panasonic, and various others, will try to out do each other in DVD sales this year."
