From May 17 to May 21, Gizmodo will kick off the summer with the Home of the Future, an immersive, real-life vision of the urban home of tomorrow.
As part of NYCxDESIGN, we will be custom-building an apartment—designed by Brooklyn-based Bernheimer Architecture—in an old gymnasium in Soho, and we will be filling it with a range of life-simplifying and energy-saving innovations, from cutting edge kitchenware to virtual entertainment and everything in between.
In the Gizmodo Home of the Future, which will be open to the public with free internet access for all, visitors will find both the most accessible and most aspirational technologies of today for enhancing our homes now and in the future. And the Home of the Future is more than just a physical space: it’s a cavalry of ideas that stand to change the way we live.
We visited on Sunday, we really liked the bike tube rug.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
