Your Take: What Futuristic Home Add-On Is On Your Wishlist?

Email  Print Print  

With all the financial turmoil, let’s turn our Friday Your Take from the current to the fanciful. A recent Marketwatch article talks about crazy home add-ons that people are looking forward to now that the prices on those gadgets is coming down (the article pre-dates the financial turmoil, which has seen the value of our brokerage/retirement accounts come down).

Instead of digging through our closets to find the perfect complement for a new shirt, we may hold it up to our bedroom mirror for a computer to scan. Using radio-frequency identification technology, our electronic fashion stylist will then offer suggestions based on what’s in our closet or how the latest edition of Vogue or Teen Beat pairs up something similar.

Rosie - Jetsons Robot MaidSome of the more mundane items, things I’d actually consider getting, aren’t quite so futuristic (or trendy) are energy saving devices that talk to one another. The article discusses a phone armed with a GPS system could notify your home’s heating or cooling system that you’re getting close, then activating the HVAC system. I think that’d be pretty slick.

Something else that would be slick? Rosie. :)

What’s funny is that it’s not that outlandish an idea.

What crazy futuristic home add-on is on your wishlist?

    hmmm… The thing I have wanted lately is a massive warm hair dryer type device to dry me when I get out of the shower. Drying off with a towel is so 90s ;)

  2. I live in a studio apartment (which I adore), and I would love to be able to press a button and automatically transform it according to my needs and moods – from an office, to a home theater, to a silk-cushioned harem tent, to a billiard room, to a planetarium, whatever! But I don’t think that’s what you meant, since it’s not exactly the kind of thing that’s being developed. Most of the stuff – even the idea that my house can sense me approaching – creeps me out a bit. I’d turn into a paranoid conspiracy theorist doublequick!

    I’d love to have super efficient solar panels first! Not too “futuristic” but something I’ve been wanting for a while.

    Get me a freaking teleporter so I can beam myself in and out of the bathroom w/o needing to get up from the computer chair. Haha.

    Kidding. Teleporter would be nice though. That’s not really a home add-on though eh?

    I want some sort of speclialized sleep chamber, that you can customize to optimal sleep settings for yourself. It would be the correct temperature, pressure, would play music, release scents, and maybe a little airborne sedative to knock you out? You just set it for 8 hours of sleep, it causes you to go to sleep automatically and then wake up automatically!

    I obviously got no sleep last night.

    I agree that getting solar panels is the way to be futuristic and make a huge difference for the environment and your wallet. It really is futuristic as not many people currently have them. I also wouldn’t mind having my own wind turbine :)
