As a property manager, I don’t deal a lot with new construction in homes but more so, making existing homes perfect for the renter’s in the marketplace. Technology is changing our homes.
However, I thought this advancement in the area of new construction was interesting. One thing I know for sure, is today’s new homes become tomorrow’s homes that we manageme in my Northern Colorado Property Management Company, Picket Fence Properties.

An invention by a 3D printing company may raise the ante for how smart a building can be. NOWlab, a branch of the 3D printing company BigRep, has developed concrete walls that respond to touch. In its model, a slab of 3D-printed concrete with a honeycomb design, three LED lights embedded in the hexagonal holes light up when skin touches the concrete. The design uses capacitive sensors in the concrete to turn the entire wall into a light switch; the sensors are connected to the LEDs with internal cables. NOWlab says the technology could be used in the future for applications from similar light switches to activating other devices.
What cool things have you seen in your friends or families homes that you’d like to see in your homes?
Are there ever enough outlets? With the evergrowing array of gadgets that find their way into our home (Pads, Tabs, Fires, iPhones, and Nexuses) it seems like the answer is a resounding “No!” Maybe it’s time to give that outlet a reboot with some USB functionality. One of the things I have seen that I wish were in every plug in America are USB phone ports. Everyone, it seems, is always needing to charge their cellular phone or device today.
