The "House of the Future" was designed in 1954 by Popular Mechanics magazine editor Thomas Stimson. In a 1955 cover story, Stimson explained his thoughts behind the prefab design and listed the amenities the futuristic home contained.
The home had a brand-new garage door opener
A fancy intercom system
And a wacky steel frame exterior.
The outside had long-lasting exterior paint.
The inside had new wood paneling.
No one had seen anything like it.
All that's left to add is a solar battery on the roof.
