We’ve been getting into ship-shape helping Google and Argos showcase the power of smart tech by launching ‘Britain’s Smartest Boat’

Such is the rise of ‘helpful home’ technology that a quarter of Brits couldn’t live without it, yet two thirds are missing out on the clever tech’s full potential. To show them everything they’re missing, we’ve been working with Argos and Google to create the nation’s first fully functional smart boat.

For one day only, the public became Britain’s techiest seafarers, enjoying an immersive experience on the vessel as they were taken through an eccentric tale of twists and turns – all powered by Google Nest Mini products.

There was reams of coverage across the nationals, as the boat made a splash on The Daily Mirror, Evening Standard, Independent, Daily Star, and The Sun, to name but a few. How a-boat that!
