Grand Designs Live: House of the Future…today

Show news

There was a time when those arty-farty designer types in flowery shirts wouldn’t have anything to do with technology, thinking it might spoil their superbly crafted interiors. Oh how times have changed.

At the absolutely packed Grand Designs Live Show (it’s amazing what Channel 4 branding can do to boost show numbers) there was more interest in homes with properly integrated tech than ever before. As well as stands showing Biometric finger print readers, mirrored TV screens, home control systems based around Windows Media Center and radiators shaped like Madonna’s boobies (OK not really tech but we like them), there was also this House of the Future…Today from CEDIA.

And while none of it is particularly news to technical folk like us, it shows what can be achieved without spoiling your grand design home. Check out the video footage by clicking on the link below.
