I've been hearing about this for many years. Remember Microwave dryer, The Refrigerator with the TV in the door, the great Polara oven that was also a combo refrigerator/oven. Many innovations, but for the masses of people who make the average, lower wages, I don't believe you'll see it. I think I will be many years retired before the smart technology becomes standard in appliances. But, if not, hey ---more stuff to break down and repair. So why worry about it.
