The Museum of Liverpool, home to the House of Memories, is hosting the Mi Smart House – a walk-through installation that allows visitors to see exactly what technologies are on offer to help them lead more independent lives in their own homes.


Mi – more independent – is a partnership that works together to transform lives through technology. Some of the amazing technology on show includes:


  • The MagiPlug, which stops the bath overflowing and changes colour if the water is too hot
  • Phones with photos to press, an easy way of calling the right person
  • Dispensers that remind you to take your medicines, and prompt you, or others, if your forget
  • A talking microwave oven


Trained advisors can be on hand to demonstrate the technology and advise people on what products may be suitable for their needs.

“It’s fantastic that we’re able to display the Mi Smart House at the Museum of Liverpool. One of the aims of the Museum is to be a hub of activity and information for the local community, so it’s great that we’re teaming up with Mi to help make the lives ofLiverpool people living with health problems such as dementia, more manageable.”
