Futures Club: Smart Devices

Futures Club Banner

Next meeting – Thursday, December 6 – 5:30-7:00 PM in Room B in the CAC.

The newly formed “Exploring Our Future in Oakmont” Club had its second meeting on November 8.  We discussed the Smart Home (how devices can control everything in your home from lighting and temperature to security).  We’re going to develop a database of Oakmont residents who use Smart Home systems so we can better share information on what’s possible and what problems occur.

The next meeting will focus on “Smart Devices”.  This will be targeted at the status and direction for devices we carry and wear – from iPhones to Fitbits to Apple Watches, etc. etc.  Come to the meeting and bring your experiences to share, or email us at futureoakmont@gmail.com.

The Futures Club is working in Special Interest Groups.  There are major topic groups: “Smart Home”, “Smart Devices”, Transportation, and Medical.  There are also background groups: “Artificial Intelligence”, “Privacy vs Personalization”, and “Aging in Place”.  If you’d like to be part of one of these groups, just email us and we’ll get you in touch with the group leader.
