After a long day at the office, you can’t always find the motivation to cook for yourself. Thankfully, London-based company Moley Robitics has come up with an alternative to takeout and ready meals that’s just as easy, and so much healthier. The ‘robo chef’ – sadly still a prototype – captures the human movement involved in preparing a meal, then recreates it with its sophisticated set of robot hands. (The humanoid appendages use 20 motors, 24 joints and 129 sensors for ease and accuracy of movement when stirring, trussing, drizzling and garnishing.) The product is at least a year away from launch – the company hopes to make it more compact, while adding a built-in refrigerator and dishwasher – but it is a glimpse into the future. A future in which you happen to have a spare $20,000, that is.

Rather than space-age technology, the biggest thing that is expected to change in the future of single-family homes is the size.
According to a study that surveyed home builders, they reported that they expect new single-family homes to check in at an average of 2,150 square feet. Current single family homes measure around 2,400 square feet, which is already a decrease from the peak home size in 2007 of 2,521.
