Currently, filling your home with the Internet of Things has been an expensive process. But IKEA is now looking to develop cheap alternatives, starting with smart lightbulbs – and no, they’re not flatpacked.

One of the ideas is a bedside lamp that would be able to imitate the glow of the sun rising, while elsewhere in your house coffee is concurrently being automatically brewed. While that particular scenario sounds too similar to the Wallace and Gromit method of getting out of bed, the amount of personalisation that IKEA seems to be offering is certainly attractive.
