The topic for the meeting of the Columbus Futurists for November 20 is the Future of the Home.
We know that many social changes are radically changing traditional definitions of family and other social units. But is technology changing the nature of the physical space we call “home” as well? A smart thermostat like Nest, smart lighting and control systems, smart meters for utilities – all contribute to new ways to consider home personalization and management.
Here are a handful of resources that will serve as the foundation of this discussion – If you find other resources you think the group will want to be aware of – please add them as comment:
- Take A Sneak Peek At Microsoft’s Vision Of The House Of The Future
- Your Gift Guide to the Home of the Future
- Best smart home devices of 2014
As one large component of the “Internet of things” – how will these devices and the ideas that emerge following them, further shape “home” – a we currently know it? We look forward to seeing you at the meeting in November!
