Comment j’imagine la maison du futur

How I imagine the house of the future

La maison du futur sera contrôlée par un grand ordinateur au centre de la maison, qui sera responsable de toute la securité: les gens auront une sorte de télécommande individuelle qu’ils utileront pour fermer à clé – et aussi pour ouvrir – les portes. L’ordinateur organisera tous les repas, fera tous les courses et maintiendra la paix en générale de la maison. En plus, il y aura une bibliothèque et une permanence où on pourra developper l’intelligence; la maison te contentera jour et nuit – vous aurez un sentiment de bonheur toujours! L’ordinateur chaufferai la piscine couverte quand vous rentrerez à la maison après une journée de travail dur, et après avoir nagé vous jouerez au billard avec vos amis. En tout, elle aura l’air très délassante! [^]

The house of the future will be controlled by a large computer in the centre of the house, which will be responsible for all security: people will have a sort of individual remote control that they will use to lock – and also to open – the doors. The computer will organize all the meals, will do all your shopping, and will maintain the general peace of the house. Furthermore, there will be a library and a study room where one can develop one’s intelligence; the house will keep you happy day and night – you will always have a feeling of happiness! The computer will heat the indoor swimming pool when you return after a hard day’s work, and after having swum you will play snooker with your friends. All in all, the house of the future will always have an air of relaxation! [^]
