Disneyland’s “House of the Future” Gets an Upgrade
by Mark R
Isn’t it just wonderful to look back and see what we thought our “future” would bring? Such is the case of the “House of the Future” in Disneyland. This was an exhibit that lasted ten years (1957-1967), and had things like a microwave oven, speakerphones, and a big-screen color TV.
It is nice to know that most homes have those features, so it is about time Disney put a modern-day (or should I say futuristic?) spin on the House of the Future.
House 2.0 is going to be a lot more expensive at a cost of $15 million. It will also be quite large with 5,000 square feet of floor space. It will also have actors living in it that will represent a “family of the future”. Let us all pray that they do not use the same fake family as Phil of the Future.
Unlike the original House, which was sponsored by just Monsanto, the House of the Future will be sponsored by many big companies including Microsoft, HP, and LifeWare.
I can’t really imagine what kind of things this House will have, but I’m guessing it will probably be one of those “smart-homes” or something. Except don’t we already have those? Well, you can see if this House of the Future is truly beyond imagination when it debuts at the Magic Kingdom in May of this year.
