Our Home of the Future is in full swing, and we kicked off the week with an opening party on Friday where guests got to experience the home and see its kinetic computer desk, spinning hydroponic towers, and telepresence robots in action.

Guests sipped our beer of the future, Hop Tech 431, made with experimental hops by Sixpoint, who gave a presentation on the brewing process. Afterwards everyone jammed to tunes by DJ Jakub Alexander as they wandered the home, testing the American-made mattress and heated concrete furniture, and even sampling edible glassware. Enjoy these photos of the evening by Noah Fowler and check out many, many more over on Facebook.


Meanwhile, we're still going strong! Tonight, come meet the Gizmodo staff at our Reader Happy Hour from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., followed by our Sex of the Future event at 8:00 p.m. And tomorrow we're open for our final day from 11:00 a.m. until close. Come grab an IPA, meet our robots, soak up our Wi-Fi, and take a seat on our unpredictable yet ultimately cozy chairs. See you then!
