The iKettle has WiFi and can be boiled from an iPhone. No, really

Ever wished you could set the kettle to boil the moment you woke up in a morning, just from your phone? Wish no longer as the iKettle is here, WiFi and iPhone app in tow! Available for £99.99 from British online retailer Firebox, the iKettle is available to pre-order now with general availability in 1-2 months.

The idea is ridiculously simple. Providing you keep it full of water, you can boil the kettle from anywhere in the home. When you wake up in a morning, the app will ask you if you want to boil it, likewise it will welcome you home by asking the same question. It's a lazy tea and coffee drinkers dream – otherwise known as me!
