In this episode I’m looking at smart home technology. From remote controls to the Clapper, we’ll find out where it began and where it’s headed. I’m also joined by none other than Bill Gates about how climate change and optimizing energy usage play a part in revolutionizing our homes.

I live in Toronto and the f**king automated door system on my building is absolute garbage LOL the f**kers just never seem to work and have extreme lag times when they just so happen to somewhat work I miss the good old days when I could push a door open in a quarter of a second no problem instead of waiting 10 seconds for a Computer to acknowledge my presence. Just saying but some of this automation is not for the best.

I like how everyone glosses over the 'clacker remote' which would have tied together the clapper intro.

Hey, your harsh I've been paralyzed since 1986 & those technologies bundled in the butler in a box, worked better than Alexa in some few cases, but when you can't move your arms let alone hands those devices are life changers, Combine them and you get butler in a box, which allowed me to turn on TV, light, and more with just your voice was awesome. It evolved slowly and now is obsolete. Same with Voice Recognition, Dragon Dictate was a separate unit and now is called Dragon naturally speaking and Voice recognition for Google, Apple, Microsoft still can't touch it for accuracy, and learns by it's mistakes and cloud does not. Ps.. Need to get Dragon again installed, "This was brought to you one click at a time plus word prediction. Hope it's readable. I wrote this before I saw the end please don't rip in to me :-)

Late comment. But you need a Retro Tech on shoes. From L.A. Gear to Nike self lacing shoes. It’ll be your most watched retro tech.

Smart homes are the diet soda of helping the environment. Oh wow your house has better insulation so you don't have to run the AC . How about YOU DON't run the AC . Here in so cal we lived in a home with no AC for the better part of 15 years and go through the summer just fine by going to the local pool etc. Give things up instead of finding out how to extract more out of the same resources.

The moment they say 1995 and I think that was a good year! I was a jr. in High School life was good then Marques says... "Yeah, I was two. I don't remember that year, AT ALL." and all of a sudden I felt like Carl Fredrickson. lol

It’s frightening that these were all new brilliant ideas during my lifetime. I remember when we had rotary phones and no voicemail thus the concept of waiting by the phone. Lol If you missed the call... you missed it.

It baffles me that the remote pager isn't just a button on the TV. They come paired anyways

Compared to taking out your phone, unlocking it, opening the app, and finding the light options, that clapper is still superior tech, so long as you only need 1 or two lights.

the solution to losing a remote is now an iphone or android device that you might also lose versus losing a remote to locate a remote.

my 20 year old remote is way smaller than the one in the video. I still use it with my home theatre. I watched the 1999 movie The Matrix on that home theatre with surround sound (Dolby Digital). you may have heard of it. He's in the John Wick movies and still awesome as ever, also there's another Matrix coming out.

Bill Gates said no to removing IP protections from Covid Vaccines effectively delaying the vaccination of poor countries aka the global south from herd immunity and eradication of covid, resulting in a delay of at mininum one year to 4 years to full vaccination for the global south. Bill Gates saying no to nations developing their own vaccines will result in millions of unnecessary deaths all because a billionaire wants to cleans his image whilst also making billions from a world wide pandemic.

One important system / computer is missing from your retro channel, and that is the Commodore Amiga, one of the earliest systems with a custom chipset, either sound and early GPU concept in a computer.

Did Marques’s team produce this or did Google manage, fund, write, film, or edit? So curious! It feels like corporate TV (but better of course, haha, sorry guys.)

I'm really trying to connect the dots between man made energy use and world climate change and I still don't see how. There are millions of bovine life forms (e.g. cows) spouting Methane and CO2 in their life cycles. There are volcanoes that spew out the pits of hell into the air of the world. And also that most ALL plant life NEED CO2 to use in the photosynthesis in their life cycle that even makes O2 in their process. The religion of Man Made Climate Change started with former Vice President Al Gore (i.e. the man who "invented" the internet), a politician! Also, the Climatic Research Unit email controversy in 2009 (i.e. Climategate) that make this whole thing about what we do that hurts the planet suspect considering what the planet is doing to itself.

We need to go "green" yet we are not allowed to disconnect from the grid. Oh, you can support 100MW solar - sorry, our policy limits you to 10KW - you need to buy the rest from us - says the county electric grid. Oh, you have full grey water handling, desalinization, all run off of solar/wind - sorry, you need to buy your water from us and send your grey waste to us says the county water & waste department. Until the government, all levels, gets out of the way we will never get to a carbon footprint of 0...

I' m using Phillips Hue for my right. actually I have the bridge and the bulb. these things cost so much that I stopped with one bulb... If this technology that I'm sure will become more and more available and easy to use could be accessible (by that I mean a bit cheaper) I think that my house (or futur house) would be completely smart home
