Innovative new home products and technologies

Technology is always changing, and that include the technology in our homes, too.

Author Boyce Thompson explores those new technologies in his book, "The New, New Home." Futuristic items include countertops that charge a phone without the need for plugs or cords, LED bulbs that fit the mood with the flip of a switch and other items.

You can see how these products and other ones work by watching the video in the player above.

You can catch Thompson this weekend and check out the products for yourself at the Novi Home Show at the Suburban Collection Showplace.
