Living Room of the Future: A Look at How Modern Technology is Changing the Way We Live




Do you ever sit in your cozy apartment and feel like you need to escape to a warm, sunny beach and recharge your batteries? When you come home from a long day and you crave a cool beer and a comfortable couch? When the weather in the big city is cold and gray and the lights in your apartment are a bit too bright and the indoor plumbing isn’t quite right?

This is your life. This is what our culture looks like.

This is what we have been conditioned to expect as the “ideal” way to live. And this is why one of the biggest challenges of moving into a new home has always been the feeling that one needs to adapt to the new place and its unique features.



Living in the past?

Lately there has been a resurgence in studies of building design. Design has always been important – with each generation changing what is considered “built” – but the amount of emphasis is larger than ever. Each generation is more affluent than the one that preceded it, and they want better.

Lately, design has become the favorite issue for TED Talks, New York Times Sunday Review, and design magazines. The question is: where will design design focus in the next generation? The focus should be on the living experience, with a more minimalist approach to design that can be realized using the latest technology.

Here is an example of what the “living room of the future” could look like. (Warning: Do not try this at home!)

Stylish modern living in comfortable surroundings. The apartment is designed in a way that promotes social interaction. Communal dining and activities spaces are part of the interior landscape – open to one another and connecting you to the outside. The design has gone a step further and contains living technology – lighting, ventilation, entertainment, communication, and air conditioning. The bedroom is designed to be well-lit and outfitted with universal appliances that are sleek and stylish. The bright colors and distinctive details of the fabrics create a unique and inviting setting.

The simple and efficient design is proof that “functional” isn’t always better than “stylish.”

Spaces in the Future

In a few years from now, the concept of living rooms will be the least relevant part of the house. The key question is: where will the humans stay? In their comfortable and connected homes – ready for the next challenge?

What are the challenges?

The typical modern home is designed according to the new technologies, which provides it with functionality and comfort.

The size of the house does not match the space needed for a family – it is the size that is ideal for the number of people and their living habits, rather than the other way around. In most apartments, there is no place for the family to go for their evening activity, and in high-rises, those spaces are often too small to accommodate a couple of people who want to spend time together. In the past, we relied on the fireplace and the television to bring people together, but nowadays the computers are the source of entertainment.

The challenge that results is that most of the human interaction takes place within the house – it is a suburban space with a couple of places to go.

The solutions

You’ve just moved into a new apartment and feel overwhelmed by the decision of where to put the furniture – in which of the cabinets? How many gadgets should be in each room? Are the windows clean? Do you really need to spend $10,000 for a sound system?

Fortunately, your new home comes with all the living technology you need to find the answers to your questions and even suggests an exciting program for you and your family.

There is a very large range of products on the market to solve these problems, ranging from very simple, new-concept designs (think of a baby monitor that is equipped with an extremely powerful video camera) to more elaborate devices that you wouldn’t be able to imagine living without (think of a surround sound system that generates sound that is as close to the source as possible).

No matter what you decide to buy, the core purpose of home automation is to provide us with a more enjoyable, comfortable, and efficient living experience.

Privacy protection and security have become a priority and in the next few years, even the basic tools that were developed to provide comfort and convenience will transform into the tools of connection and communication, keeping our families in touch with one another and guiding us through any of the challenges that may come our way.

The Function of the House as an Information Gateway

The home is not just a place of physical comfort, but an information gateway.

It has become an indispensable tool that can help us access information and let us process it. This is an exciting and disruptive trend in the years to come. At the same time, it is an interesting trend to pay attention to – this house of the future that lets you do everything just by using a simple on-board device will turn the basic concept of a home into a device. This means that in the next few years, the home will change its role from being a space of rest and relaxation to a tool that informs you and helps you solve all kinds of problems, big or small.

We live in the information age. Information is a great source of freedom and the power of knowing many things is very empowering. But for this tool to become effective, you need to have all the necessary information available in one place, as it allows you to reach higher levels of decision making.

In today’s society, most of us struggle to find the right information, and the chances that you have all the information you need to make a decision is slim. Information overload can ruin your decision making, forcing you to select information that is probably irrelevant.

Therefore, the traditional way of decision making – analyzing and trying to figure out what you need to know, based on your skills, experience, knowledge and criteria, and then searching for the right source – is no longer effective. It is not easy to find the right sources.

Today, we have entered a new age of intelligent information overload. At the same time, we are going to see the transition from information overload to intelligent decision making.

This doesn’t mean that your life will become simpler in the coming years, but it does mean that information you need can be accessible, you will be able to search and get information quickly and easily, and you will not need to spend time going from source to source.

The result is a huge potential for progress in a world that doesn’t allow us to be lazy, allows us to be free, and helps us to stay in touch with one another.
