A team from US-based Carnegie Mellon University has developed a device that can smarten up an entire room's worth of regular devices. The prototype, coined as a Synthetic Sensor, plugs into a regular wall power outlet and monitors the room it is placed in with sensors that commonly crop up in smart home devices, including sound, light, vibrations, heat, temperature, and electromagnetic signals. It then uses machine-learning algorithms to analyse what the data means.
