Take a Tour of Sofia Vergara’s High-Tech Future Home
Sofia Vergara may have a beautiful, modern mansion as Gloria Delgado-Prichett on Modern Family, but it’s definitely nothing like what she envisions for her real home. Apparently, she’s been reading our smart home coverage and the future home outtakes from Homemakers, because she wants to tech-out her entire house so she can control everything with her iPhone and voice activation.
She wants all of this to be controlled from one device… or better yet, she wants to be able to stand in the middle of living room and just blurt out her demands, meaning everything would need to be voice activated. Vergara adds, “In a Latin accent, of course.”
Besides an easier way to Skype and hang with her kiddo when she’s traveling, Vergara mentioned how she really wants a “cute butler robot with a British or German or Scottish accent that cleans around the house, offers you drinks and reminds you of stuff, something like the female robot in The Jetsons.” Same here, girl. We’ve been dreaming of a Jetsons-type pad since childhood, and making it a reality over the last couple years. Oh, and Sofia, if you’re still looking for a cute robot to do your chores, you might want to check out Botlr.
