Discover how "smart" a room can be at the Technology for Independent
Living Fair presented by the Age Center Alliance, Inc. on May 19 and 20
at the Menlo Park Recreation Center in Menlo Park, California.  The event,
scheduled from 10 am to 4 pm both days, is FREE and open to the public.
 
Designed by Stanford University engineers, the "smart kitchen" features
special storage systems with moving cabinets and high-tech cookware.  The
smart bathroom features an automatic toilet,  faucets and hand dryers.
The "smart home office" is equipped with on-line services for grocery
shopping and bill paying and remote appliance controls.
 
These "smart rooms" are complimented by more than 50 other exhibits
showcasing innovative solutions for people who want to live independently
but require some assistance to do so.  The Fair offers a unique
 opportunity to test new devices.
