I can imagine a variety of use cases. A gazebo or small hut not connected with a power grid to quickly clean BBQ-Sauce spilled shirts :). Your mobile home on tour or in a house tent when you are abroad for some weeks. Or just to save energy in single households.
Some great innovations might not be so spectacular that a new phone, but they are not less important.
