The House of the Future in 1957

With technology now a ubiquitous part of everyday life, it’s not difficult to think too much about the house of the future. Basically it’s a bit like our current ones, but with more robots. Well, that’s how I think of it anyway.

Things weren’t always so simple. I recently found this video from 1957 which showcased ideas for a home that blended technology and functionality. As you might expect the aspirations are a little different to those of today, and involve lots more plastic, motorised shelves, irradiated food and uncomfortable looking chairs.

Still, the dishwasher is cool.

What would you want from the house of the future? Let me know in the comments below.
