Future Living Report

It’s official we are now futurologists! We knew it would happen soon enough!

A PDF of the report can be found here: Future-Living-Report

In the report we set out our visions on the future of living, the rise of technology, changing patterns of human behaviour and rapid urbanisation, huge advances in 3D printing and augmented/virtual reality in the home as well as material advances and seeking out alternative habitats such as underwater homes and even terraforming other planets.

The report was commissioned by Samsung and prepared in collaboration with Space Scientist Dr Aderin-Pocock, and professional urbanists Linda Aitken and Els Leclercq and has been featured in many international press publications:

 

Britain’s leading space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock unveils the SmartThings Future Living Report, which predicts that within the next 100 years, as Earth’s resources become exhausted, communities and cities will develop on the Moon before moving out into the galaxy, onto Mars and beyond. The report was commissioned by Samsung. EMBARGOED TO 00.01hrs 15th February 2016.

Britain’s leading space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock unveils the SmartThings Future Living Report, which predicts that within the next 100 years, sub aquatic communities will be commonplace. The surrounding water will be used to create breathable atmospheres, generating hydrogen fuel through the process. The report was commissioned by Samsung. EMBARGOED TO 00.01hrs 15th February 2016.

Underwater city homes growing their own food and producing breathable oxygen and hydrogen for electricity through the splitting of water molecules.
