Highlights from the International Builders Show

Dwell Magazine recently reported from the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas. The show is hosted by the National Association of Home Builders. View the slide show from here.

A kitchen that doesn't take itself too seriously: the Amana Dry Erase Refrigerator.

A few interesting products:
  • Kitchen Aid's Inductive Cooktop: Induction technology heats the pan and not the cooktop surface, through an electromagnetic transfer of energy.
  • Delta Pilar Faucet: Water turns on and off by touching the faucet (Touch2O Technology), anywhere on the spout or handle.
  • Snazzy grab bars by Kohler. Grab bars can be installed in a bath or shower before they are needed, and not take away from the style of the bathroom. (See previous blog entries on Universal Design--you never know when you will be the one who needs it).
  • Stainless steel is so 2002: Dry erase refrigerator by Amana. Of course, it's still magnetic.
