Looking ahead to social challenges and megatrends to come, the Wonder
Life-BOX will present a concrete vision of future lifestyles from a
daily life perspective. Under the concept of "An enriched lifestyle you
will admire – self-designing life and comfortable life," Panasonic
proposes a lifestyle that allows people to take initiative to live a
comfortable life by taking advantage of a range of community and social
services best suited to each person or family based on the information
collected from consumer electronics and housing equipment in the house.
Visitors will find a future lifestyle with a “Partner” that supports
daily life in various aspects by connecting people and things to achieve
an enriched lifestyle with both “security” and “sharing.” The partner
will assist people via two-way communication to ensure safe and secure
living, helping to relieve anxieties such as disasters, crimes and
health conditions. The Partner will also facilitate sharing of things,
information and spaces that leads to strengthening of bonds among people.
While offering the latest information via the Wonder Life-BOX, Panasonic
will develop new business partners and establish new business models
based on feedback from customers who experienced first-hand the future
lifestyles in the showcase. Further, by inviting key persons from
different fields, technical seminars with a focus on a specific social
challenge will be offered in the future. In doing so, Panasonic will
continue to pursue "A Better Life, A Better World" for each and every
customer and strive to create new businesses for the future.
You can easily obtain information about stores and products by simply
holding your mobile terminal against signage and lights in the town. You
can order products on the spot or enjoy clipped information at home.
Thus, information connects the town with a person's home.
In a futuristic home, the Partner supports daily life by assisting
people via two-way communication. As a go-between to connect people and
things in various aspects, the Partner will ensure security, protecting
from anxieties such as disasters, crimes and health conditions. The
Partner will also facilitate sharing that strengthens bonds among
people. (Collaborated by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.)

The household energy system using environmentally-friendly,
highly-efficient hydrogen enables people to secure energy at home, which
provides a sense of security in any situation.

people gathering together to spark their conversation. In a time of

Through dialogue with the Partner, the range of cooking can be expanded
from simple recipes using the ingredients found in the refrigerator to
professional-level creative dishes.

Locations and movements of family members are detected so that screen

table, and on a wall surface. The Partner will also help check hidden
spots of the house including house conditions.
Bathroom mirror and Bedroom (Relaxation space for health and beauty)
