"The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) created a new specification for Home Network Communication Protocol over IP for Multimedia Household Appliances (IEC 62457), reports I4U. "The new home network protocol allows to network traditional household appliances with personal computers and audio-visual equipment like TVs. The washing machine would be able to display a message on your TV screen when its done. The new standard is due to be published in October 2007 and some products applying its specifications are now on the market in Japan."
