Future travel: Underwater resorts, mobile houses

Report predicts travel we could see within 100 years
Holidays in space and the chance to take your own home on holiday are just two of the changes we could see occur within the next 100 years, according to a new publication called the SmartThings Future Living Report.
It also predicts the creation of entire cities suspended underwater in a giant bubble, skyscrapers that would make existing structures look miniscule and earthscrapers burrowing up to 25 floors below ground level.
The option to build your own home by 3D printers will be available, while drones will be able to pick up the entire thing – and deliver it to where you want to go on holiday.
The predictions have been made in a report commissioned by Samsung’s SmartThings app and was written by British space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock with help from a team of experts including futurist architects and lecturers at the University of Westminster Arthur Mamou-Mani and Toby Burges and urbanists Linda Aitken and Els Leclerq.
“Over the next century we will witness further seismic shifts in the way we live and interact with our surroundings” said Dr Aderin-Pocock. “Just 10 years ago, technology like SmartThings would have been inconceivable, yet today developments like this let us monitor, control and secure our living spaces with the touch of a smartphone.”
