The designers at Virginia Tech say they have made the home of the future with a concept so innovative that it can totally change the residential industry.
FutureHAUS has developed sophisticated but modular solutions for the home of the future, capable of bringing up an elegant and futuristic residential space in just a few days.
The interior is completely futuristic, everything is dynamic: if you host people in the house for a party, the walls make room and create a larger living room. In the bathroom, the protective glass can also transmit television images. The floor also acts as a scale and diagnostic system, monitoring the weight and other parameters of those who walk barefoot. Fingerprint recognition allows the bathroom to remember the parameters of each one, adjusting the water temperature according to his tastes.
Even the individual pieces of furniture rise and fall to adapt in height to the occupants of different heights: it seems a bit like the home of the mad hatter.
There is also a voice assistant, who will be a bit the house's butler of the future. FutureHAUS's home is fully equipped with an Amazon Alexa.
"It's almost like building houses using Lego," says Joseph wheeler, co-director of the Virginia Tech design research center. "A very advanced Lego".
FutureHAUS prepares everything with an LED ceiling that perfectly mimics the light of day, and the roof houses a landing point for the future drones that will deliver goods.
"These new methods will also help us reduce the impact on the environment," says Emil Avram, the vice president of innovation at Dominion Energy. "This house of the future has solar roofs, conserves energy with its batteries and recycles water."
All in a generous 270 square meter space, which can be built and configured entirely in a week.
