Our best friend, the computer, assured us the weather was good and announced our mail … and the house was teeming with robots to do all the dirty work. Even the garden had its own robot! The reality? All we want is a roof over our heads ... and a widescreen TV! However, great innovations have been made with advanced building materials, urban sprawl, and alternative architecture.
