(Daily Mail) Technologies such as robotics, 3D printing and artificial intelligence are poised to reshape where we live in the coming years.

Augmented reality could beam a ‘holographic’ Gordon Ramsay into your kitchen, to offer cooking tips as you fire up the induction hob.
Every surface in the home could be transformed into a touchscreen that operates different tasks, walls can turn into windows on demand and your house could double as a food-growing farm.
Augmented reality could put a virtual chef in your kitchen, talking you through meal plans. Those who enjoy a tough love style of learning might opt for a Gordon Ramsay hologram
Future homes will be designed with materials able to withstand a warmer world
Any surface will be able to turn into a screen that performs specific operations of the home
Walls, floors and ceilings might be able to transform themselves in response to voice commands, with nanotechnology turning walls solid or translucent or into a giant TV screen.
Humanoid androids will tend to the whole home – the first models are coming on the market now, thanks to Tesla and companies like 1X, but by 2050, experts have predicted they will be capable of cooking, cleaning and even childcare.
Augmented reality will fundamentally change entertainment, said Ian Silvera, editor of Future News, ‘AR-enabled wearables could also bring the home, its fixtures and devices to life.’
‘A hologram of Gordon Ramsay teaching you to cook or JRR Tolkien narrating his own books in your bedroom (thanks to AI and AR technology) could be coming sooner than you think,’ Silvera said.
Future homes will be studded with entertainment ‘pods’ so people can have privacy while they enjoy their own entertainment
Homes will be divided into ‘stream’ and ‘non-stream’ zones
Silvera also believes future homes will be studded with entertainment ‘pods’ so people can have privacy while they enjoy their own entertainment.
‘As we continue to live through the smartphone and streaming age, our media consumption practices have changed dramatically compared to the TV age, where a centralized location in the home (the TV set) concentrated people into one area for entertainment purposes,’ said Silvera.
‘Streaming pods are already popular in the workplace,’ he noted, ‘and can be easily absorbed at home.’
Architects may also want to consider stream and non-stream zones in their designs to make the home a more harmonious environment, while internet-enabled devices mean screens (with micro LEDs at the forefront of the technology) can adorn any wall of the home and fit seamlessly into interiors.’
Mike Ralphs, Head of Digital Technology at tech-centric rental homes operator Quintain Living said that walls in the home of the future could transform their appearance with a touch or a voice command.
‘With the use of nanotechnology and AR, surfaces could display different colors, textures, or even project images to personalize the home,’ said Ralphs.
‘They will also serve as interactive screens for virtual communication or displaying information.’
