San Francisco is home to technology. Now it’s home to perhaps the most technologically-advanced house, too.
Inside a new store on Fourth Street stands a mockup of a Victorian-style house, complete with gingerbread trim and a three-panel bay window — but made entirely out of acrylic.
There’s a nursery, in which visitors can trigger a morning routine that’s homey and alien all at once. A projected silhouette of a baby in an acrylic crib awakes. A onesie outfitted with sensors, from the startup Mimo, detects the movement and alerts a mother’s phone in the adjacent room. A shimmering white stream of data visualizes the connection.
