Argos and Google unveil Britains Smartest Boat Miscellaneous

argos_and_google_unveil_britains_smartest_boat


Argos, is opening up ‘Britain’s Smartest Boat,’ featuring Google Nest products.

According to a poll of 2,000 smart home device owners, three quarters use their smart speaker every day, with more than one in 10 (13 per cent) using them every hour to help them get through their daily asks and tasks. And yet, the nation isn’t making the most of their clever gadgets, with more than two thirds of people admitting they may not use their devices to their full potential.

There are a wealth of ways to use a smart speaker in the home, from being walked through a recipe step-by-step, to calling an old friend.

To showcase just some of their helpful uses, on Friday 15 November, leading tech retailer Argos, is opening up ‘Britain’s Smartest Boat,’ featuring Google Nest products, to the public for one day only. The immersive experience will see curious customers hop on board the tech-savvy vessel and enjoy a humorous lesson in how to connect their home.

The nautical novices will be taken through a tale full of twists and turns with eccentric characters, playing the role of prospective flatmates aboard the vessel.

While smart speaker aficionados say the most useful functions of their smart home devices are playing music (52 per cent), finding the weather forecast (44 per cent) and telling the time (35 per cent), this unique event will highlight the lesser known uses of the mini-but-mighty gadgets, leaving guests with a myriad of suggestions they can use next time they fire up the Assistant in their Google Nest Mini, for example.

To help land lovers raise the IQ of their own home, every participant will receive their own Google Nest Mini to take away so they can create an interactive home of their own.

The brainiac boat is open to one and all, but those who want to find their sea legs must register online to secure their spot. Places are limited

For those wanting to spend some more time on ‘Britain’s Smartest Boat’, Argos is offering five lucky people the chance to win an overnight stay on the boat and enjoy a delicious dinner, courtesy of a personal chef.

All hopeful entrants need to do is enter a prize draw by posting on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram the smart home function they would most like to have in the future with the hashtag #ArgosGoogle
