Information Pot(i-pot not i-pod)


In Japan young people have the iPod but the elderly have the i-Pot or “information pot”(not to be confused with i-pod) from the Zojirushi Corporation.

Aimed at the elderly who live alone, the i-Pot not only boils water (for tea or soup) but it also records the times when that elderly person pushes the button that dispenses the water. A wireless communication device at the bottom of the i-Pot sends a signal to a server and users of the service can see recent records of i-pot usage on a Web site.
