Yuppoware... We`d love this type of crap when I did construction cause it means you get to charge more and eventually come back to fix over engineered crap. Do yourselfs a favor keep it simple less things to go wrong.

What`s funny is that anyone who had that much money to spend on wine wouldn`t keep it in a glass case; wine is kept in cellars and put in dark colored bottles because exposure to light degrades it.

I can agree to some part, but it`s great for teasing the mind, and some of these have potential, if not in their current form.

Everything was so minimalist and postmodern that I fell asleep watching this.

When the stylistics of your promo video gets in the way of the message or information, you`ve failed.

Let`s see...

...a strange obsession with air "purification", an oddly inefficient-looking cooking system, an overly technical composting system (because compost bins are so difficult to use...right), a modular system that was more style over function (not to mention that anyone that restricted on space is never going to be able to afford anything like that system, and anyone who could afford that system would instead spend their money on living somewhere larger)...

...and all of it, ALL OF IT, is shiny metal and glossy white plastic; just what you DON`T want unless you want to spend your life cleaning cleaning cleaning, or replacing/disposing of appliances because the slightest scratch/scuff will make it looked beat up, because high-gloss "perfect" items can`t cope with looking used.

In a word: bollocks. All of it. High-concept pointless bollocks, with only a fleeting connection to reality.

It looks shiny but it doesn`t actually exist.

Those were all cg.

Only the best ideas catch on. Some of these seemed really impractical.
