What do you think homes will be like in the future? Gizmodo recently designed a prototype of a futuristic residence in SoHo, New York City. It was on display from last Friday through Wednesday.
We spoke with some experts about how technology will shape the way we live in our homes – from growing your own organic, fresh fruits and vegetables indoors to a moving desk that can transform your workspace from a sitting desk to a standing workstation. The kitchen of the future even featured edible glassware, as well as some healthy, freshly grown fruit.
Some of these technologies are still being perfected and being developed, but others are available now.
Popular game accessory developer Razer showed off its concept, Project Christine. “As new PC technology evolves, Project Christine can evolve with it. Need more graphics processing power or storage? Easy – a user can slot in additional graphics modules and add more storage by either swapping out the existing storage drives or adding more modules,” Razer said about its product. As for the innovative design of the device itself, “each sealed module is entirely self-contained and features active liquid cooling and noise cancellation. With this design, Project Christine’s components can be safely overclocked without voiding warranties.”
Gizmodo editor in chief Geoff Manaugh also addressed the attendees during his opening speech at the home of the future last week.
During the weekend, Gizmodo held several workshops, including a Sex of the Future panel and a Future in Gaming presentation. Gizmodo also hosted a fashion-oriented panel, which focused on wearable technology created by local brands, designers and fashion enthusiasts.
