Want a glimpse of where you'll be living in the years to come? Check out these homes
We've put together 5 futuristic homes for you to take a look at.
1. The WaterNest 100
It sounds like a fancy vacuum cleaner, but this home is actually a tech-lovers ideal abode. In addition to being able to float on water, it uses solar power. Plug it into your electric car (or boat) and you'll be set for energy. Oh, and it's also constructed from recycled materials.
2. The Shell House
Instead of large skyscrapers and sprawling residential developments, how about a home that takes you back to nature? The idea behind the Shell House was harmony with nature. It also helps that this home looks seriously cool.
3. A home beneath the waves
Yes, it's a pretty scary thought, but a home beneath the waves is actually a great idea. The obvious benefit is the easy access to the ocean for a spot of fishing or a refreshing dip, but it's also possible to access tidal power. Furthermore, you won't have to worry about sea level changes!
Strange name aside, this concept for a new kind of mobile home could catch on. This module-style house can be transported anywhere the owner sees fit (permits permitting, of course). You'd probably need to hire a crane and truck, however.
Looking like a spaceship that's just landed, this tiny home generates power and captures water. Even though it's seriously small, the home is still big enough to comfortably handle two adults. Would you live in a home this compact?
