& # 39; Intelligent & # 39; temperature-controlled sheets and shape-changing furniture that change color are among the incredible innovations that could be omnipresent in homes of the future, experts say.
As technology progresses, so do the structures in which we live and how we build the things we use to manage and maintain, not just our homes, but also our health.
People are becoming more environmentally conscious and with that come forward-thinking ideas to help us face a smarter future, in which we as individuals take more responsibility to take care of our planet.
A panel of experts and Smart Energy GB, a campaign for a smarter UK, have now shared their vision of the Smart E-Home of the future, starting today.
TV presenter Carol Vorderman, actor Robert Llewellyn and futurologist Dr. Ian Pearson have shared their views on what the eco-house of the future might look like.

The House of the Future, a & # 39; Smart E-Home & # 39 ;, includes temperature-controlled sheets and shape-changing furniture, according to a panel of experts, including presenter Carol Voderman and actor Robert Lllewleyn
WHAT ARE THE KEY COMPONENTS?
• Bedding with different temperatures depending on the individual preferences of the bed partners
• Smart cushions and furniture that change color, fabric and texture with the help of augmented reality, so that they need to be replaced less often when refurbishing
• Hydroponic indoor gardens, which means that we have to harvest fresh vegetables in our own kitchens in efficient light use – these can take up as much space as a wall cupboard or bookshelf
• A charging station and vehicle for electric vehicles – one giant battery for your home and energy for use in the neighborhood, where carpooling in the neighborhood offers an alternative to public transport
• Bathrooms that track your health statistics in real time
• Toilets that turn waste into fuel
They met to discuss the technologies that are evolving now, which could mean that these innovations will become a reality in the near future.
Smart toilets; living rooms that transform color, texture and shape through voice commands; and living kitchens with hydroponic fruit and vegetable gardens are all predicted as part of our future residences.
Statistics show that seven out of ten Britons want to live in a more environmentally friendly home, while 83 percent are interested in technology that would make their homes greener.
The panel encourages everyone to get a smart meter to help create a smart network that uses greener energy.
The high-tech sheets ensure that during a heat wave you will never again suffer from a sweaty, sleepless night.
And the AI furniture can also change shape if you want to introduce new items into the room, but fear that there is a lack of space.
Other future must-haves include toilets that turn waste into fuel, and a community-based pooling system for electric vehicles may also be on the horizon.
Hydroponic fruit and vegetable gardens that grow in sand, gravel or liquid in your home are also likely.
They also debated the small steps that the British are already taking for a cleaner, greener future, including the possession of a composting bin, energy-efficient white goods and the purchase of a smart meter.

Robert Llewellyn, the TV actor and presenter of YouTube channel & # 39; Fully Charged & # 39 ;, Dr. ir. Ian Pearson, a futurologist and speaker, and Dr. Jo Patterson of Cardiff University, also on the panel of experts.
Smart Energy GB has conducted a study on this among 2,000 adults in the UK.
The research was commissioned to reveal possible innovations in engineering and architecture that will shape the future of sustainable living and the & # 39; smart grid & # 39; could transform.
The company found that seven out of ten wanted to live in a more environmentally friendly home, and 83 percent said they were interested in new technologies that could help them achieve this.

Dr. Ian Pearson said: & # 39; Making houses greener certainly does not mean that they are low-tech.
& # 39; With the Smart E-Home we can completely redesign our homes without having to purchase new fixtures or fittings.
& # 39; Instead, we use augmented reality and smart furniture made from reconfigurable materials.
& # 39; Our homes use renewable energy, stored in home batteries, and will make our lives easier.
& # 39; For example, hydroponics will grow fresh salad and herbs, reduce the number of trips to stores and improve our diet at the same time.
& # 39; Special LED lighting provides the colors of light that plants prefer, avoiding wastage, and of course smart meters can provide the energy for this lighting when it is the cheapest. & # 39;
The predictions of the British for the future home include a giant battery to store energy from the sun and windows that adjust to the light to keep your home warm or cold without heating or air conditioning.
Others expect a life in which we can fully live from recycled rainwater or even have micro turbines in homes to generate energy.

WHAT IS THE VISION OF THE PANEL ON FUTURE HOUSES?
Smart meters, the building blocks of a smart energy grid, are an important part of this future.
They will provide the grid with information to add more capacity when needed, change our electricity pattern and make it easier to add electric vehicles, solar panels, wind turbines and heat pumps to the energy system.
Smart Energy GB has also commissioned research to show that 70 percent of adults want a more environmentally friendly home, but two in ten (20%) don't know how to tackle this and more than two-thirds (67 percent) think it's too expensive .
Nevertheless, 83% of Britons are interested in new technology that would make their homes greener.
The 2000 adult poll revealed that owning a composting bin and energy-efficient white goods, and having a smart meter and a water-saving shower head are just some of the small steps the nation is taking to create a more sustainable way of life .
Looking ahead, the British predict that the Smart E-Home would have a giant battery to store sun energy and include windows that adjust to light to keep your home warm or cold without heating or air conditioning.
