There's something about home automation that just seems so futuristic, even though we've seen it in various guises over the last few years from various manufacturers.

And this brilliant demo by Samsung of home control, using the Galaxy Tab, looks incredibly innovative, and most importantly - incredibly easy to use.

Samsung has the advantage of producing pretty much every electronic product going - basically if an object needs a plug, then Samsung has probably produced one.

So, it makes sense for the SamTab to become the supreme overlord of all of your Samsung appliances.

Sadly, there's no details as to when we'll actually see this demo come to fruition, but we're hoping it'll be sooner rather than later.
