Popular Science is partnering with Sunset magazine and creating the "House of the Future". Built in Silicon Valley's backyard, the house will demonstrate trends and products consumers will see in the marketplace in the near and distant future. Popular Science will feature a future focused area with prototypes of building and home products that will affect the way homes are built for years to come.
The House of the Future will showcase what Popular Science forcasts in home technology products and applications, and what Sunset sees as home design trends moving forward.
