You were one of the irrepressibly brilliant minds in science and engineering that inspired me as a kid. Today, I'm an aerospace engineer, and it is so deeply fulfilling. I met my wife through work, bought my house through work; so much good in my life is because of those who guided me down this path. There are so many just like me. So many who have so much because of the life you led.

RIP Grant, you built a better future... and kickass robotics!! You earned your bench space at the Great Workshop In the Sky. One day, I hope to do the same. You will be remembered.

Pretty cool, but why does the home of the future come with a massive Ford pickup truck? That's hardly the future of anything

I don't think the house of the future is all about technology and connection, it's all about energy and self-sufficiency.

The "home of the future" is on suspended subfloor. Covered out with render so that no maintenance can be done easily.

The "Home of the future" is a joke unless it comes with the "Local Government Regulations of the Future" in order to bring the costs way down in this era of the emerging "Tech economy" that is pricing the middle class and poor right out of the housing markets like some sprawling cancer.

I don't see this concept as eco-friendly
This is great though.
Why can't we use GFRC panels instead of a wood framework? I mean why to use wood anyway, why to cut trees if these can be done by other alternatives which are eco-friendly, stronger and even cheaper than wood.

high perimeter to area ratio (check), lots of glazing (check), practically no eaves (check) = Modern Architecture indeed. Even in a forgiving climate like Austin, the owners will be at the mercy of active cooling (AC) 6 months of the year. I would have aligned skillian roof to face south to maximize solar gains and employed generous eaves to keep the thermal loading off the mass - perhaps with north-facing clerestory windows to increase the internal cross ventilation. Smart houses used traditional design principles first, and active systems to increase efficiency second.
