House of the Future, for real this time

by Alexander Rose - Twitter: @zander on February 13th, 02008

Wired and AP is reporting that Disney’s new “house of the future” will be (re)-opening this May. The original one (prominently sponsored by Monsanto Plastics) that opened in 01954 was closed only a decade later, (see the excellent video above and Part 2 here).

Apparently the new one sponsored by Microsoft, HP, and LifeWare looks more normal but is filled with a lot of digital wizardry to “make your life easier”. I assume this means “Clippy” will be doing my dishes soon.
