The house of tomorrow. What will it do? What will it look like? Fortunately it may be possible to predict what the future of housing will have in store for us a few years down the line. As due to recent innovations in housing designs and home appliances it is possible to expect a whole range of multifarious technological advancements, ranging from self-cleaning paint to smart windows.
So, without further ado, here is a list of the advances in domestic appliances and housing that you can expect to seeing in your lifetime:
Self-sufficient pod housing
Ever wanted to live-off grid in a self-contained unit that is powered by a low-noise wind turbine, has highly energy-efficient solar cells, can charge an electrically powered car and filters natural rain water? Then this abode is great for you, especially if you’re a typical anti-government conspiracy theorist as it allows you to live off-grid in nature and is eco friendly so doesn’t harm the environment.
Either way it’d be nice not to pay the bills, live self-sufficiently, and become independent of any faceless, behemoth authoritarian entities. So if this product doesn’t sound too tinfoil hat crazy to you then the ecocapsule maybe the futuristic housing pod for all your anti-government, nature-dwelling, and/or transcendentalist needs.
Housework may soon become obsolete in the face of the new self-cleaning paint that is water resistant and can handle wiping, knife scratches and even being sanded down by sandpaper. Truly a marvel of modern chemistry, this paint is created from titanium dioxide nanoparticles. It works by being waterproof which allows the outer coating to clean itself as water molecules on the paint form marble-shaped droplets that roll over its surface and act as a miniature vacuum cleaner.
These special windows can turn from translucent to opaque at the touch of a button. This will replace shades and curtains and will control the amount of light you let in. This revolutionary piece of tech is available as soon as 2020, so it may not be too long before smart windows become a normal aspect of our everyday lives.
3D printed food
The kitchens of the future could come with 3D printed food as standard. Due to recent developments in 3D printing food could be produced that is based on: nano-cellulose, which is a natural, edible, and even calorie-free fiber. With the ability to produce meat substitutes for vegetarians and vegans where no animals are ever harmed in the making this appears to be a massive development in the kitchen that can suit everyone’s culinary needs.
Smart Body Analyser
Weigh-ins and maintaining your body image goals has just gotten a whole lot friendlier. The new smart scales will analyse your weight, body fat, heart rate and BMI. It also features an accompanying app that helps you to track your activity throughout the day and helps set the calorie budget to ensure that you hit your weight targets.
So with all these new housing ideas and appliances looking to make an appearance in our lifetimes which piece of future tech are you most looking forward to seeing?
