The future home is something that people have talked about for decades. And, because the future home concept tickles our imagination, scientists and engineers have been working hard to develop different systems to make houses "smarter." In the paragraphs below I will outlines some of the technology for future homes that is either in development or already on the market.

Video camera at entrance identifies visitors using facial recognition software. The facial recognition software of the future home will not only identify friends, but strangers as well. And the software in your future home will run the strangers face against a database of criminals and terrorists.

Toilets of the future will not only be heated, void of toilet paper, have a pleasing cleansing of the behind, but will also analyze stool samples for medical problems such as colon cancer and urine samples for teenage drug use or pregnancy issues.

Remote monitoring of the future home is already here, but also on your PDA or other handheld device you'll be able to manually override your future smart home's systems on the fly. Unexpected guests arriving, well, start that air conditioning early or open the door when the video facial recognition software detects their presents.

The future home will run off solar panels, wind turbines or both. Backup batteries may be used or an electrolyzer, compressed hydrogen and a fuel cell may also be used as backup power. Extra hydrogen and electricity will be produced and stored so you can fuel up and recharge your hydrogen fuel cell plug-in hybrid electric car, which is the future car you'll most likely be driving.

The future home will also have smart appliances as well. Ovens, microwaves and refrigerators will be combined and automated so remote cooking will be a possibility so meals are prepared for one's arrival. Think this is science fiction. Check out the TMIO kitchen appliances for a start.

Future homes will also have refrigerators that will download recipes based upon what it is stocked with and what is in your pantry. The recipes will then be forwarded to you. In the home of the future, the refrigerator will also take inventory of all food supplies in the home and alert you when you're running out. The refrig may also be programmed to contact the local supermarket to drop off the needed food supplies.

Future homes will also be very energy efficient. Microsoft, Google and others are now working on applications that tie into the smart grid for individual home so that you will be able to visually see and track which appliances use the most electricity, where heating and cooling is escaping in from one's home and how you can produce more energy with your solar panels or wind turbines.

In the future home there will be a vast neural networking system connecting all appliances, TV's, PC's, video, security and remote handheld or Bluetooth-type devices. There will also be other green systems in place such as saving, purifying and reusing wash water and bath water. Plants and people may receive pure or mineralized drinking water.

Speech recognition will be far superior to Dragon Naturally Speaking or other programs and applied to this network. Besides facial recognition software, your future home may also combine speech recognition software, hand or fingerprint scanning or a combination of these security measures.

In the future home, high definition television and PC will be combined so that one can access the Internet and watch one's favorite programs at the same time.
One will easily be able to chat over social media about a television show that both or multiple parties are watching in real time.
Smart showers will not only be able to recycle water, but will be able to store individual profiles for each member of the family according to preferences and patterns of usage. One member may take long baths while another short showers. Automated soap and shampoo dispensing for male or female will be programmed in. Water temperature and pressure settings can also be individualized.

In the future home, the smart bathroom will also be able to take inventory of such items as toilet paper, shampoo, soap, hand soap, and other toiletries and then automatically either remind or reorder the items as desired.

Since future homes will have advanced network systems, self-diagnostics will also be a critical feature. If one part of the network or peripherals is malfunctioning or needs repair, the owner will be notified or else and automated repair order will go out. Self-healing of many software problems will occur in the future home as patches or workarounds can be download or remote support enabled.

If you think this future home concept is pie in the sky or science fiction, then think again. Most of the systems outlined here are either in development or already out on the market. Future homes may not be standard yet for the middle class but this isn't as far ahead as many people would think.

Future electronics and gadgets will be way beyond iPads, iPods, iPets and the like though the near future will be filled with these gizmos, gadgets and apps. I foresee one day in the not too distant future iPads, iPods, iPhones and all of the associated apps will be combined into one product.

How can this be you ask? Size does matter. Indeed it does and there is a way around the size issue. Future electronics technology dictates that one day soon virtual holographic screens and keyboards will appear on the market.

What this means is that you'll be able to have small piece of hardware the size of a USB drive and it will project a virtual holographic screen, keyboard and keypad that is of the size to your liking. From this virtual image you'll be able to type, dial, surf the Internet, watch TV, movies, listen to music, take photos, find yourself and friends locally through GPS, do facial recognition of strangers, run background checks in real time and other items the imagination can't quite grasp right now.

But future electronics will not be all about one product as there will be many open source technological products in the marketplace from which to choose. While walking or hiking would you like to scout out the area ahead? Well, you'll be able to do this with your own personal drone.

Miniature helicopters and airplanes will become so sophisticated and automated you'll be able have them take real time video and do your scouting from miles away. Even while in your car, your vehicle will communicate with these drones about traffic conditions, crowdedness of restaurants, who is at work or school already and too many functions to list.

Decades beyond this your future electronics will be a small device that you'll think into and this will do away with the virtual holographic keyboard, screen and keypad. Think this is farfetched? Humans can already think into computers and do quite complex tasks using current technology. The human brain is made up of billions of neurons running complex electrical processes every nanosecond.

But, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves yet and only go into the foreseeable future of electronics. Within the next decade, Wii and XBox will join forces along with an MIT development of a "Personal Global Playing Area". What this means first is that all Wii-XBox games will be experiential so no matter whether it's Call of Duty or a game of golf, you'll be actively and experientially involved.

The second part of this is that you'll be suspended inside of your personal 360-degree globe where you can run, fall, do summersaults and other stunts in real time without getting injured. This will be 3D, HD interactive play at its finest. This will be quite the opposite of a sensory deprivation chamber and more like a sensory stimulation globe.

In your personal globe you'll also be able to switch to doing work if needed, talk to friends, and take a 3D vacation. No "Total Recall" movie here as you'll have control of stepping into or out of your virtual world at will.

Future electronics also dictate that with your small electronic device you'll be able to control the every move of your robotic personal assistant. Not only that, but a decade after this robots will go semi-holographic in that you'll be able to project them when and where you want them and have them do tasks that they physically will be able to do in the real world.
For instance, you'll be able to project your holographic robot from your personal electronic device and have it cook you a meal, prepare your bed, or do what little laundry you'll have at this time. Your hologram robot will have physical properties and will be able to move objects and do other physical tasks. When finished you'll be able to recall your personal robot into your small electronic device and go on with your business.

Future electronics will continue to evolve, mutate and integrate with one's brainwaves and neurological being. Practical and ethical dilemmas will slow progress but only for so long. Electronics integrated into one's body will be inevitable, but then progress past this point will take place and future electronics will no longer be necessary inside or attached to one's body.

As you already know, the future of electronics changes rapidly. Gadgets, gizmos, computer hardware, software, biology, genetics are all quickly changing fields which are moving together at a rapid pace.

In only a few years time, the invention of the laptop will be on par with us looking back at the invention of the printing press or steamboat. Newborns of today will grow up in a vastly more personally power electronic world than we can even imagine today. And they won't even realize the here and now as we know it.

If you've come to this web page looking for movies that will be playing in the near future then you may as well hit the Back button and leave right now. This page is about revolutionary future movies and the technology behind them.

Like other industries the movie making industry of the future will be hammered with disruptive technology. This disruptive technology will forever change the moviegoer's life.

In fact, future movies will be played in smaller, more prevalent decentralized theatres across the country. Large movie theatres will not go away entirely but they will be added to the mix of smaller theatres inside many malls and even convenience stores that are able to hold 1 to 8 people and play the most current movies on demand as well as a huge database of older movies as well.

If you're in a hurry, you can start watching a movie in one of these booths, download them onto your personal iPod, iPad, laptop, cell phone, blackberry or the newest personal electronic device and take them with you. As the future advances even more, these movies can be downloaded into a special section of your brain for storage and you'll have access via total recall to these movies on demand.

Future movies will be virtual experiences as well. In the decentralized versions you'll be able place yourself as an avatar inside the version of the movie you are in. You'll be able to limit the number of other avatars in the particular future movie you are watching.

If you don't like this particular crowd, you can easily jump to the same point of the flick in another future movie and join in with another crowd. Approximately 10 years beyond this there will be participatory future movies where you will not only be able to step into the picture as an avatar but become one of the caste of actors in it and join in the plot with the other directors and actors.

Think of this as a kind of virtual workshop for actors and fans to join together and improvise the movie in the making. This Karaoke approach will appeal to many who don't like to be passive in the movie experience but would rather join it. If you would rather remain passive, then you can do so and watch a different version of the future movie that is non-participatory from the fans. Or you will be able switch between both venues at will.
Future movies will hit large theatres, small personal public theatres, home theatres and personal electronic devices at the same time.

Future movies will also join with social media where you won't need a Hollywood studio to create a wonderful picture. In the future anyone can post their own homemade movie on today's equivalent of Youtube, Facebook or Myspace.

Friends and the public at large will be given permissions to alter these movies, join in, be excluded from or work on them as a large group project. Different versions of these social media movies will go viral as excellence will be achieved through group effort.

The same technology as stated above will be afforded the masses so that Hollywood no longer has a stranglehold on how future movies are made and distributed including the large budgets and advertising campaigns behind them. Think of how the music industry has changed on the Internet in the past few years and you'll get a glimpse of things to come for the future movie industry as well.

Future movies will be more democratic through social media in shared creation and enjoyment of the flicks. Just as Wikipedia has created a more accurate dictionary than Miriam Webster, using the power of the people at large, future movies will be transformed through this same collective conscious engagement and experience.

Future City

Many people are wondering what the future city will look like. If I were to look into my crystal ball, what I would see is that future cities will be clean, green and full of optimism and hope.

The city of the future will be cleaner and greener because of solar and hydrogen energy. Elevated hydrogen trains (Hyrail) will be powered by solar energy that electrolyzes water for fuel cells. This electricity will power MagLev Hyrail trains.

Also running through future cities will be, at ground level, hydrogen fuel cell trains (or Hydrail). While Hyrail will most typically be passenger trains, hauling people around the future cities, Hydrail will be using the power of hydrogen fuel cells to haul cargo inside and outside of town.

The future cities of America and elsewhere will also be heavily equipped with solar panels. There will be photovoltaic panels on the rooftops on almost every building and the windows of each building will double as solar panels as well.

And, of course what would a future city be without a future car for every driver? These future cars will run on hydrogen, electricity, biofuels and even air. There may even be a few future flying cars that sail above traffic during rush hour. Thing Jetson or Flux Capacitor, then think again. Prototypes are here now.

In the cities of the future, every building will have smart technology. The smart technology will distribute and conserve energy through the building where it is needed most. Also, many buildings using solar energy will produce more electricity than they consume.

       They will be tied into the smart grid, selling power back and the smart grid will redistribute the energy in sections of the state and country where it is needed most.The future city will also be inhabited with huge balloons filled with algae the produce hydrogen. This hydrogen will then either be run through stationary fuel cells to provide energy or be used as fuel for cars.

City life in the future will be a bit different than it is today. Future phones and laptops will have merged into small hybrids with WiFi everywhere and VoIP the standard for carrying voice and video data.
Future robots will have taken over the many tasks. The Honda ASIMO robot will be in a Tech Museum right downtown. Other kinds of robots will inhabit the future home.

People will only travel for vacation as the need to travel for business will be eliminated with the virtual business world. And for people who do want to go on vacation will do so either on supersonic jets or Maglev bullet trains.

The typical future city will also be filled with people using jetpacks instead of driving their own vehicles or in addition to their vehicles. Fuel grade hydrogen peroxide will power these jetpacks that only emit water vapor and will be able to travel for miles before refueling.

This vision of what the future cities will look like is all based upon emerging technology that is available now. This emerging technology of course has to be refined, downsized in many cases and of production quality. Look for nanotechnology to have taken over in many fields.

The future city will be a bright, hopeful place filled with green energy, interconnectivity and applied virtual reality.

Future Car

Decades from now will the next big future car be powered by hydrogen, electricity, biofuels or even nuclear energy? Many people want to know the future of the future car.

Perhaps the flying future car will be perfected in our lifetimes. But, let's take future cars one by one to see which is more likely to grace our highways and roadways a few years ahead.
Hydrogen fuel cell cars are here now and all the major automaker at least have one prototype on the roads. The Honda FCX Clarity and Chevy Equinox FCV are future cars that are here now being loaned or leased to multiple consumers.
The only current problem holding hydrogen cars back is the lack of adequate refueling infrastructure. At this point in time, it looks like Germany and Japan will be leading the charge in building this hydrogen refueling infrastructure within their countries.
The electric car is also a vehicle that is here now and has been for a while. Like the hydrogen car (which is also an electric vehicle), the electric car also lacks a viable recharging infrastructure.
Couple this with a short range before recharging and hours of recharge times and the electric car isn't quite ready for prime time (although Tesla, Fisker, Phoenix Motors and a few others will tell you differently).Biofuel cars are also here and have been for a while. Ever hear of someone running their diesel car or truck on veggie oil? Yes, that is a biofuel. Gas stations in the Midwest have been selling gasohol (10-percent ethanol and 90-percent gasoline) for many years.

Most of the major automakers have some form of flex fuel vehicle that has been rolled out to the public. Many Brazilian cars run on 20 to 25-percent ethanol blends.
But, then what about nuclear-powered cars? In 1958 the Ford Nucleon concept car was introduced to the public.The Nucleon was supposed to have been powered by a small nuclear reactor in the back, but a prototype was never built.

There have been many people working on nuclear powered cars or plasma powered cars but none has been successful yet. But, just give it another 20 or so years and you could be driving one to your future home.
Then what about future flying cars? The Moller flying car (Moller Skycar - pictured below top) has been in development for a while. It runs on diesel or biodiesel but it isn't ready for primetime just yet

The Terrafugia Transition flying car (pictured bottom) has actually made a documented flight but it is classified by the FAA as a light aircraft and is much more of this than it is a car.

A couple of other notable attempts at flying cars were the Waterman Aerobile and the Taylor Aerocar.
So, what future car holds the most merit? It's hard to tell at this point. Each future car has it's own strengths and weaknesses that must be overcome by innovation and political will. With enough time the future car of tomorrow will be the standard automobile of today.

BENQ-SIEMENS-FUTURE-PHONES CONCEPT:- Even if Benq-Siemens is bankrupt here are some future concepts of phones.Cell phones design is going to keep getting crazier and crazier. It’s inevitable.

And in the pursuit to create something groundbreaking-and-original, companies are designing devices that are looking less-and-less like actual phones.

Take for example these concept devices from Benq-Siemens. They do undoubtedly look cool, but it’s hard to tell whether they’re actually phones—I’m really just taking their word for it here.

Every think one is thinking about future technology.Before 2000 we think there is a lot of technology in world, what is beyond this.But i  am sorry guys i your thinking is like this .Because technology never ends . It is eternal. It never ends ,its goes wherever we goes  because it take birth with us , so it also goes with us .

Nokia MORPH:

It is a phone that can change shape to any type you want to. Because of the use of nanotechnology, it is water,weather and even hand print proof. It recharges itself by harvesting the solar energy.


Nokia 888 Communicator:-

A phone that is very flexible that even has a wide screen. Good for traveling, I guess!!

Using a single password on the internet is often a recipe for disaster. One account creation on the wrong site, and all of your accounts can be compromised.

On the other hand, how can you remember all of these passwords for each site, and which one you used where? It's a herculean task of memory. To make your life easier, there is software that will take care of it for you. Never click on "Forgot your password again." Read on to learn more.

Using Facebook Connect:-

Many sites are starting to use Facebook's login technology to verify your account, which means the only password you'll need is the one for Facebook. To take advantage of Facebook connect, simply click on the Facebook icon. You'll see a small Facebook overlay verifying your attempt to log in using Facebook. Comply and you'll be logged in with a single click.

Some sites that take advantage of Facebook Connect:

Find more sites on Facebook Connect's web page

Some alternatives to Facebook Connect:

Using Keepass and 1Password:-

Using an online solution is great for sites that support those kinds of logins, but there are thousands of other sites that don't.

Browsers are another alternative. Most browsers store your passwords and will autofill them when you surf to a page it recognizes. The problem is when you upgrade your browser or if you ever have to reinstall, you lose all of those passwords in one foul sweep.

The best way to organize and secure your passwords under one is using software like Keepass (Windows, Linux, and Mac) or the Agile Web Solutions' popular 1Password software.

These applications will create very secure passwords for every site you create an account for and store it locally on your computer under a single password. When it detects a login, it will give you the option to fill in your account settings for you, using the password you enter or an ultra-secure password it has generated for you.

In the future:-

Requiring internet users to remember a different password for every site is unreasonable. That is why web service companies are more and more adapting to solutions like Facebook Connect and OpenID. It makes sense for software developers as well, since creating a sign-on solution of their own is expensive and arduous.

With these technologies growing more popular, in the future, you won't even have to think about logging in. A simple click will both authorize and log you in to any site, and the site owner can trust that you are who you say you are.

If your employer block non-work-related sites like Gmail, YouTube, and Facebook, you could try bypassing the blocks with a public proxy -- but those are typically blacklisted, too.

Here's how to forge your own detour:

Download the PHProxy program from

Unzip the file and upload the entire folder's contents to a Web host that can run PHP scripts (GoDaddy and Dreamhost offer plans for less than $10 a month).

Enter the host URL into your browser. When the proxy page pops up, type your actual destination into the blank address bar.

You're now free -- and free to poke away.

Connecting to a ssh server with your webbrowser

If your problem is the reverse (ssh is blocked but surfing is possible) then surf to Webbased SSHthat site allows you to use ssh in your browser (http by default, https if you want to keep your traffic secret).

Use an SSH Server on port 443

Your corporate proxy knows nothing about what goes on over SSL/HTTPS connections. They simply allow any TCP connection to port 443 of any IP not blacklisted. So you run an SSH server on port 443 and connect to that to tunnel all your real connections.

If you are using your home internet connection for this, simply go into your router and port forward 443 to port 22 (the normal SSH port) of your computer. If you have a Mac, turn on remote administrator access in "sharing" and you'll be good to go. Or use a dedicated server you may have hired at a colo; Linux firewall rules can forward port 443 to 22 also. If someone knows how to run an SSH server on Windows, please add it here.

On a windows computer you can add Open SSH and Cygwin, as it takes quite a bit of information to create a seperate article will be created. installing sshd on windows

On your work computer, find out the IP address of the proxy. You'll likely find this in the connection settings for IE. You may have to download the "PAC" file it references to work out the rules.

Download PuTTY. In "Connection", add the proxy you just discovered as HTTP proxy. The proxy may require your username and password, usually in "domain\user" form. Then in "Connection>SSH>Tunnels" enter 8181 for source port, leave destination empty and select the "Dynamic" radio button and click add. Go back to "Session" and save this session.

Now try and open this session and see if you are in luck. If you are, you log into your server and the tunnel will be active.

Now all you need to do is change your browser to use "localhost:8181" as SOCKS proxy. Stuck on a locked down IE? FireFox installs just fine in your "Documents and Settings" folder without the need to admin rights on your computer.

If the connection failed, it could be that your company use Microsoft's proxy and it requires NTLM authentication, which PuTTY doesn't provide. In that case, download "ntlmaps" which sits between PuTTY and the proxy and takes care of the NTLM authentication.

This is not a step by step guide because the details will be slightly different for everyone. Work it out and prove you are a geek!

Yes, it's a lot of work but I have never not been able to escape the confines of any company, nor has any network security group detected this was happening. YMMV!


When executing this work around you are essentially creating a back door into the company's network that is bypassing your companies content policies. For those of you that feel comfortable doing that, have at--but be aware of following sage advice.

If you work for a company that has industry regulated security compliance standards, like PCI, or the company has its own security polices, you could be putting your job/career at risk using this technique. Employees at a variety of corporate venues both large and small have been terminated for even a single breach of corporate content policies. You may even be violating the law, particularly if you work in the Banking or Defense industry. Read your company's employee handbook, particularly those sections related to IT policies, before pursuing any of the above work around.

Many companies log internet activity, and some have HTTPS inspection. This means that your HTTPS (TCP 443) data is decrypted, inspected, logged and re-encrypted by a firewall. Inspection of decrypted port 443 traffic, typically blocks non-http traffic (e.g. SSH over port 443) this renders such an attempt to bypass your companies security, invalid. You can detect SSL inspection by browsing to a site you trust and checking what certicate authority issued the certificate, then viewing the same site at home. Some Cisco firewall, Forefront TMG, and ISA (with addition of addons) offer this feature to your IT department.

Even if its legal, even you found some loophole in the employee handbook, even if you don't get caught by the company IT department, or they are simply "asleep at the switch", and even you restrict your web surfing to lunch time and breaks, you'll prove you are a geek all right--and the loser who does nothing all day but look at Facebook/EBay/etc. to any co-worker that happens to walk by your computer the moment you browsing to a site they know you to which you aren't suppose to have access.

You would be well advised to just surf from home and keep your job, or get cell phone or other wireless device that has web-browsing capabilities and head down to the local coffee shop to find out if your grape harvest is ready in FarmVille.
