A report by a group of future architects, academics and urbanists looks 100 years into the future, predicting 3D printed homes and buildings that can be carried to any place on earth using drones.
The SmartThings Future Living Report suggests that in 2116, people will be living in super skyscrapers made out of carbon nanotubes and diamond nano threads, “earth scrapers” going down 25 storeys underground, and bubble cities located under the sea. Not only houses but also the furniture within them will be 3D printed and can be carried by personal drones to go on holidays while we enjoy custom food fresh out of the 3D printer.
The report was commission by the internet of things company SmartThings, owned by Samsung. ”Just 10 years ago, technology like SmartThings would have been inconceivable, yet today developments like this let us monitor, control and secure our living spaces with the touch of a smartphone”, space scientist Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock, co-author of the report, said.
With the commercialisation of flights into space, we will have the opportunity to spend our holidays on the Moon and Mars in 100 years from now, according to the report.
“Over the next century we will witness further seismic shifts in the way we live and interact with our surroundings – working on the SmartThings Future Living Report with a panel of industry experts has allowed me to explore what these could be”, she adds.
