If memory serves, it's actually revealed in a Jetsons movie that they live up in the sky because of the smog below. I can only assume the planet itself is some kind of horrible wasteland.

/No mention of teh globl warmnz, though.

Can't we just pretend that at some point we're going to go back to a 1950s homogeneous style in the future? You know, high tech electronics, Brad and Betty Sue going on a double date to the sock hop with milk shakes, and apps?

When wall and "window" displays get good enough, will it make sense to live above ground anymore?

there will be too many desperate people around bodies of water seeking food & drink. may be wise to prepare underground shelter on your property up away from the water.

Why do all "the houses of the future" look too awkward to keep efficiently heated/cooled and has a footprint that waste too much land area around it?

skinink: Why do all "the houses of the future" look too awkward to keep efficiently heated/cooled and has a footprint that waste too much land area around it?


Because they are designed by architects unrestrained by costs, engineering or building codes. I took a class in "Solar utilization in the built environment" many years ago. The rest of the class members were architects, I was a MBA student. We all designed houses. The average house was over 6000 sf and took 12 tons of air-conditioning in the summer to counter the solar features. My house was 2000 sf and used a 6000 BTU window A/C unit for cooling.

There's a gutted and repainted Futuro "House of Tomorrow", on the front lawn of a thrift store called The Pink Elephant, in Livingston, IL, just an hour south of Springfield on Hwy US 55. Ruined inside, yet still cool, it was once an exhibit at the state fair for a year or two. The new owners painted it a metallic green and plan to rehab the interior into a party space for kids' birthday parties.

My house of the future will be a chinese peasant's hutong. There wont be any food or electricity, but what the hey. Security is an illusion.

You would have one heck of a time controlling humidity.

Sump pumps, fire exits, air, and power outages. Unless you have a way to stop this, I will keep my windows.

Yeah, because it takes nearly a 200k mortgage to overcome the standard deduction...

Everything is different, but the same.
Things are more moderner than before.
Bigger, and yet smaller.

It's computers.
