Microsoft’s model of the future’s house looks like science fiction, but interactive bedrooms, trays that charge mobile phones, sensors that notify you when plants need water and kitchen tables from the surface of which you can read your recipes may be closer to our real world, in which society and technology move forward at the speed of lightning.

Entrance to the future is here

This is the entrance to the model of the house of the future, which is located at the Microsoft briefing center in Redmond. Doors open Microsoft's vision of how our modest homes may look in the not-so-distant future, where the natural user interfaces on walls and countertops are used with technologies like sensors, LEDs, gestures, multi-touch, voice control and 3D and define our lifestyle.

Decorative smart tray

In the front door, a decorative tray charges devices such as smartphones and watches and displays information such as time, temperature, and battery power. But still deeper. In the picture, a smart watch was put in the tray in order to upload information about the last work, automatically synchronize the heart rate, distance traveled, calories burned and information from other devices that you may have with a personal Microsoft HealthVault account.

Recipes on the table

Using sponsorship technology, the kitchen table can show you the list of required purchases, suggest recipes based on the ingredients available in the refrigerator, and then voice the steps in steps. The picture shows the proposal for the preparation of focaccia bread displayed on the table.

Personal kitchen display

This multi-touch display in the kitchen uses programs and services to provide personal information such as a family calendar, messages, and event reminders.

Screen Health

The kitchen display keeps track of personal health information, just like a tray in the front door, but with much more information on the big screen. This system offers a visualization of your medical history, potential effects of the diseases you received and tips for finding medical professionals.

Travel everywhere from your room

In the entertainment room of Microsoft's future home, you can virtually visit art exhibitions or retail stores. The surface of a coffee-like table creates a sense of living environment on the screen through detailed images of goods available for viewing in all 360 degrees. You can communicate with the store employee, view and select the product as if you are actually in the store.

The dining room comes to life

In the dining room, the table is turned into entertainment for children. Guests can adjust seats for themselves, and virtual airplanes can fly over the surface with gestures.

Records on the wall in the dining room

Wall-sized screens in the dining room use cloud services to think through a healthy diet and diet, allowing you to track your diet.

Fantasy bedroom

In the bedroom of the future teenager, each surface is interactive. By integrating social and entertainment services and wall connections through the interactive surfaces of displays and touch technologies, the design of the room can match any mood of the teenager.

Family screen

The main family screen offers personalized digital content, access to other people through messengers, access to entertainment, information and the internal environment of the house (light in rooms, air conditioning, alarm). The content is personalized individually and offers everyone tips on his favorite media.
