Predictions: The intelligent home and how the Internet of Things will transform our domestic lives.
When you think about how radically our lives have been changed by technology over the past few decades, you really have to wonder – what’s next?
We already have a comprehensive idea about the future of domestic living. The ‘Internet of Things’ is already taking us into an era where connective technology is changing how we live our daily lives.
The Internet of Things could transform our daily lives. Your smartphone can already predict the weather but by 2036 your wardrobe could select an outfit based on your plans and the latest forecast. An intelligent alarm could adapt your wake-up time to suit any traffic or public transport delays.
Your home will actively monitor your health and alert you when something is wrong. Experts predict that you’ll be able to look in the mirror, have your vital signs scanned and the results sent to your GP. If you need a consultation you can be immediately linked to a relevant doctor.
In the kitchen, there will be a fridge that monitors every item including expiry dates. Not only will you be able to order items by telling your fridge to do so, it will also order based on your habits, whether you’re away or have visitors and also suggest recipes to ensure nothing goes to waste.
The Industrial Strategy & Ageing Society
As part of the Industrial Strategy we will harness the power of innovation to help meet the needs of an ageing society.
The innovations in this video suggest different ways our ageing society could benefit from technology in the future. The missions is to ensure that people can enjoy at least 5 extra healthy, independent years of life by 2035, while narrowing the gap between the experience of the richest and poorest.
