The Living room, one time considered a mainstay of family life, and was the one room that on a daily basis brought you all together to reflect on the interesting anecdotes each member had experienced in their respective day to day lives.
Unfortunately the living room has been forgotten in recent years, instead family members opting for various gadgets to keep them enthralled and entertained, rather than watching the TV communally, you’d be on your mobile phone/tablets as individuals. Well no longer! The living room is making a comeback in a big way, it is fast becoming a family staple once more thanks to the following unique, interesting and brilliant gadgets below.
Touch Screen Tables
The beauty of a tablet table is that it can be utilised by multiple users, whether you want to play a game such as the one above with your children or you want to blow ol’ gran’pappys mind. With Lenovo recently releasing a, “Budget” version of the Tablet Table it is becoming more affordable than you think (whilst I still can’t afford one at this moment in time) it’s not hard to see the prices continuing to fall in the next few years to encourage family purchasing.
Xbox One / PS4
Today they’re trying to appeal everyone, they realise that gaming doesn’t have to be a niche or taboo hobby. More importantly something that everyone can enjoy. Grand children and grand parents alike now have universal platform on which they can explore virtual landscapes from the comfort of their own homes.
Utilities that scream excitement and involvement such as The Xbox Kinect (Included in the Xbox One package) and the PS Eye are relatively cheap add-ons considering the amount of fun each encourages.
Perfect Sound & Picture
As a family unit, you’re more than likely going to spend a great deal more time together viewing than anything else whilst in the house. So it’s important not to forget why you fell in love with the television in the first place. And the reason is, it immerses your mind body and soul into a Technicolor dreamscape. You feel what the protagonists of the film are feeling, you’re there during their ups and their downs. During every twist and turn, every cliff-hanger.
The TV has long been the hallmark and focal point of any respectable living room. So it’s important not to neglect the power of cinema. Don’t forget about surround sound. Once you purchase quality speakers, they last decades, plus it really compliments the cinema experience to no end. Utilizing one more of the human senses is a must if you’re thinking of revising and reinvigorating your living room in the near future.
