Innovative home entertainment and technology retailer 1touch is working with more traditional store groups to showcase 'single touch technology'.
The aim is to show customers how they can wire up their homes with a one-touch network, enabling them to control items such as televisions and stereos from a single point.
1touch has teamed up with Wish, a Leigh-on-Sea-based independent lifestyle product store, which sells everything from sofa to vases, to showcase its wares.
It is also understood to be in discussions to with Retail Variations' Ocean business, and Habitat.
1touch was established by former employees of the Innovation Group.
Managing director Mark Butcher said: 'This technology has to be touched to be believed.'
