From vertical indoor gardens, to LED night light grab bars and integrated smart home technology, these KBIS 2020 exhibitors are changing how people live in their homes. Be sure to make time to visit the following booths to learn more about how technology is revolutionizing the kitchen and bath industry.
Grow your own produce right from your kitchen. Kitchen Garden, by Natufia Labs, is a fully automated hydroponic indoor garden system. Slightly larger than a single door refrigerator, this integrated system is outfitted with a series of ceramic pots and/or microgreen plates to grow a variety of fresh herbs and vegetables indoors. Once connected to the home’s WiFi, the system monitors the garden providing real-time data analysis on an integrated touchscreen or remotely on a smartphone or tablet. The machine processes environmental changes within the garden and automatically waters the plants and adjusts the PH levels. It even plays music for the plants to help them grow.

It’s a wine opener, chiller and dispenser rolled into one. The Plum wine system is a countertop super-automatic wine appliance created to elevate the “wine-by-the-glass” experience. It holds two standard 750ml bottles and can preserve each wine for up to 90 days. Plum’s advanced, Wi-Fi–connected system scans every bottle of wine using an integrated camera and then searches its six million–bottle database to determine the wine’s optimal serving temperature, as specified by the vineyard.
