DisneyLand Brings Back House of the Future in May

This story is from AP:  Millions of Disneyland visitors will soon get to retrace the thoughts of others who lined up a half-century ago to see a home packed with mind-blowing gadgets expected in the future.

Disneyland’s original “House of the Future,” a pod-shaped, all-plastic dwelling, quickly seemed quaint and closed its doors after a decade, in 1967. Its oddities included hands-free phones, wall-size televisions and electric razors.

But Disney announced Wednesday that it will soon open a new dwelling in Tomorrowland – this time in partnership with 21st century technology giants.

The 5,000-square-foot home, scheduled to open in May, will look like a suburban tract home outside. But inside it will feature hardware, software and touch-screen systems that could simplify everyday living.
