Robotic butler, artificial intelligence, sensors everywhere. At the Gitex Global technology exhibition underway in Dubai, the Bulgarian company Living Homes presented a prototype of a house of the future. It intends to start marketing it from next year starting from the Emirati city.
People are greeted at the entrance by a robot that can detect the mood of those in front of them and behave accordingly. A home automation system then allows you to control all the parameters of the house, from the temperature to the alarm to the operation of the various devices. In the kitchen, a robotic arm prepares food and drinks. Another robot brings coffee to the living room, while a giant screen shows videos selected by artificial intelligence based on the tastes and moods of the people present. These solutions are currently designed for ultra-luxury homes, but over time they will probably become widespread.

"We want to provide a new experience, in which the home is not only integrated but is smart and able to adapt to your needs – explains Georgi Atanasov, Technology Advisor at Living Homes – It's not science fiction. We don't just believe it's possible. That's something we're already doing."
