IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

The Great Wave

Dear <<First Name>>,

It should come as no surprise that as most of us are spending more time at home, we’re seeing more innovations aimed at optimising our living (and working) environment, such as:

🧱  Smart bricks that could power our home electronics using solar energy. 

💻  New designs for the home office, like these portable cubicles to help keep our work life separate.

🍽️  This tiny, eco-friendly dishwasher that can also sterilize household items like keys.

This week’s Innovation Snapshot provides a window into how our lives at home are changing now and what might lie ahead in the not-so-distant future. 

As always, stay safe and stay positive!

— Justin
