Trekkie Tech for Home

True fans of Star Trek will recognize the LCARS like touchscreen system in this video. It appears to be in another language so I can't read what the functions of this home control unit does, but you can see it closes a shade for the window. From things I've seen in the past, you can most likely control anything that runs off of electricity. I'm thinking of things like home entertainment and music, lights, heating and air, and more. I also liked that it became a fish tank at the end. You could make it into a digital photo frame, rotating through a library of pictures. Story found on Engadget.
