When it comes to predicting what’s going to be hot, hot, hot there’s nothing like talking with a technologist whose world revolves around the latest and greatest in the way of gadgets and gizmos. Xavier Gonzalez, Executive Director of the upcoming eMerge Americas technology mega-conference, which takes place May 2 through 6 in Miami Beach, is at the helm of the effort to turn South Florida into a tech hub for Latin America, and to bring an unprecedented level of innovation to our fair city. Not surprisingly, he’s also an avowed techy himself and, therefore, the perfect person to offer a glimpse at the newest technologies available for Miami homes.

If you’re thinking residences might start to look like something out of the Jetsons, Gonzalez said, you’re on the right track. “As we start to attract more entrepreneurs from around the world here in Miami,” he said, “they’re going to be demanding more technology not only for their businesses but for their homes too.” Here, Gonzalez shares four exciting home tech products and how they’re making life easier—or at least more entertaining.
