17. November 2015 · Comments Off on Intel develops ‘Smart Tiny House’, an IoT living lab · Categories: News · Tags: , , ,

Tiny homes are all the rage, at least in certain parts of the country, hailed as a way to minimize one’s impact on the planet, keep personal costs low, and utilize resources more efficiently. Tiny houses are also often viewed as a sacrifice, requiring one to give up many modern-day conveniences and necessities. Intel disagrees, and has built it own tiny house, packing it full of the latest and greatest smart technology to showcase what is possible.The tiny house is located in San Francisco, and is a joint effort between Intel, Kyle Schuneman and Minim Homes. It is a mere 210-square feet, less than half the size of what is commonly considered a small one-bedroom apartment, but it can do far more than the average American home. It is, in the best definition of the word, a ‘smart’ home.
