iLifestyle is anew show that started in February 2013 on SABC1; it airs on Thursdays at 18:30
The show explores how technology affects peoples everyday lives and one of the elements of ‘iLifestyle, is the profiling of South African inventors who have developed or use technology as a way of solving an existing problem or enhancing one’s life.
The team was at House4Hack today shooting a short segment which was initially intended to cover Blumote, but after they heard and saw that we are opening the door and gate using smartphones and smartwatches, SHAC was included.
I took some photos of Thuli(presenter for iLifestyle) interviewing Toby:
It was lots of fun working with the team, who seemed genuinely interested in what House4Hack is doing and are planning a follow up show, where more of our inventions can be showcased.
