About the event:

From May 17 to May 21, Gawker Media’s flagship technology and design blog Gizmodo will host the Home of the Future, an immersive, real-life vision of the urban home of tomorrow. In collaboration with Brooklyn-based firm Bernheimer Architecture, Gizmodo will be custom-building an apartment in a converted gymnasium in Soho, and filling it with a range of life-simplifying and energy-saving innovations, from cutting edge kitchenware to virtual entertainment and everything in between. In the Gizmodo Home of the Future, realized with the help of Verizon Wireless, visitors will find both the most accessible and most aspirational technologies for enhancing our homes, now and in the future.

And the Home of the Future is more than just a physical space: it’s a cavalry of ideas meant to change the way we live. As such, we’re also inviting all of the region’s design buffs, architecture enthusiasts, and tech innovators to visit the Home of the Future, where we’ll be running a series of live public events, including workshops, demos, meet-ups, film screenings, and more. The space, open to the public and offering free WiFi throughout the day, will also be soundtracked with a handpicked playlist of futuristic ambience from our friends at Other Music, and we’ll even be premiering an exclusive new beer of the future, using experimental hops, brewed for us by the mad scientists at Sixpoint. Check our website for more details as our calendar of events and workshops takes shape.
