A look at Microsoft’s House Of the Future (coming soon to Disneyland?)

Back in February Disneyland announced that it would be bringing back the concept of the “House Of the Future” in the form of a Microsoft “Dream Home” inside Innoventions. Now AdAge has been given a tour of Microsoft’s original version on the Redmond, WA company campus.

The mock home, set up on the company’s corporate campus in Redmond, Wash., represents Microsoft’s vision of the future and the ways in which technology might change the American household at least five years out. The home has been around for more than 15 years; very early iterations talked up how important technologies such as cable TV would be. More-recent iterations have displayed now-available technologies such as tablet PCs and Microsoft Surface.

It will be interesting to see how many of these technologies make their way down to Anaheim. Passholder previews begin in June, but you must make a reservation at the Disneyland.com website.
