    A world first Australian- developed "wearable skin" is set to revolutionize the health and diagnostic industries .. Due to the ground-breaking research by engineers at Monash University.. the skin can track health signals from such ailments as muscle strain, as well as measure blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels. It even assists in detecting autism. The device (see below) collects tailored data that can be monitored on any Smartphone or Blue-tooth.

    This is surely the home of the future? Science fiction had become science fact for a Sydney apartment block that is being called Australia's "smartest residence"

    Tech-savy house hunters can now buy into this new Burcham development in the southern suburb of Roseberry that features such innovations as finger print scanning, licence plate recognition, voice control and even its own electricity source for electric cars. It also boasts geofencing which notifies the home when the owner is approaching and presets such things at liting or heating.

    The whole enchalada is fuelled by solar power. In the unlikely event of a power outage the system will shift to manual operation of the doors and utilities. Dont expect to pay anything less than $790,000 for one of these "smart apartments".

    Does the UK have anything like this?

    I doubt whether an apartment block powered entirely by solar generated electricity could work here. Possibly in summer with lots of strong sunshine and a day of 15 or 16 hours, but in winter where daylight is limited to less than 8 hours and it is very weak, I think solar would not produce anywhere near enough power and would require backup from the grid.
