A 13 year old boy wins a computerized home manned by a cyborg maid named PAT. When he and his dad move into the house, he figures that his dad will cease considering re-marrying anyone since the house and PAT can handle all of the cooking and cleaning chores. However, his father soon shows an interest in the computer programmer. This sets the boy into tinkering with PAT’s program and sets in motion a too wife (and mother)-like nagging robot.
In 1999, when the Disney Channel original movie Smart House imagined what a fully automated, high-tech home might look like, the idea of an intelligent nervous system that managed your daily routine, arranged your wardrobe and made smoothies was far-off science fiction. In 2015, connected devices are making the smart home a reality.
