Mediabolic announced a new conception of digital home based on the Yahoo! Digital Home Engine. The Yahoo! Digital Home Engine is a software module which can be installed on PC or a network-attached storage (NAS) product to give consumer electronics devices access to the media from the Yahoo! websites. Currently it’ll work in Japan only. But I think this conception will be expanded to the rest of the world if it’ll be success.
Currently Yahoo! Digital Home Engine covers only entertaiment area. Let’s see how it’ll be integrated with existing home automation systems.
