Holidays in Space

Having a holiday in space and mobile houses are predicted for future travel.

Holidays in space and the chance to take your home with you on holiday are just two of the changes we could see occur within the next 100 years.

These predictions are just two that have been made by the SmartThings Future Living Report.

They also predicts the creation of entire cities suspended under water in a giant bubble like the Gungans in Star Wars, skyscrapers that would make the Shard look tiny and earthscrapers burrowed up to 25 storeys below ground level.

Houses could be built by 3D printers while drones could pick up the entire thing and then deliver it to where you want to go on holiday.

The predictions have been made in a report commissioned by Samsung’s SmartThings app and was written by British space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock with help from a team of experts including the futurist architects and lecturers at the University of Westminster Arthur Mamou-Mani and Toby Burges and the urbanists Linda Aitken and Els Leclerq.

“Over the next century we will witness further seismic shifts in the way we live and interact with our surroundings” said Dr Aderin-Pocock.

“Just 10 years ago, technology like SmartThings would have been inconceivable, yet today developments like this let us monitor, control and secure our living spaces with the touch of a smartphone.”
