    Bloody useless without the Robot to make the tea and bring it back to you! I mean you've still got to get out the chair to get the tea

    thats what a sensor is for - detect water level if water level is below this level then device wont turn on, if it is then water will boil as the device will be switched on ( Device being the kettle in this case obviously )

    I get the feeling that the WOL kettle won't on it's own be seen as a big development, however it a prerequisite of the WOL technician.

    Actually I started an automated kettle once, with: a tea maid thing that my parents used to have; an asterisk phone system; a mains relay; and a door release gadget with a phone interface. Nearly worked

    I can see the though process now. "OMG a WOL kettle!! I knew I wasn't crazy. I'm off to tell those fools at Edugeek I was right all long"

    Show the manufactures this thread and try to claim royalties for the idea.

    They all need to interface so the toaster can tell the kettle to boil at the right time so they they finish in perfect sync.
