What happens when you take the best technology and combine it with solar panels and an xbox kinect? You get a house that recently won the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon. The house (CHIP)is powered by solar panels and makes over three times the energy that the house needs. This gives it ample power to run additional items like charging electric cars or electrical yard appliances. The roof also has the ability to change shape allowing the solar panels to get the maximum amount of sunlight each day.
The entire house is controlled by the xbox kinect (a camera that can movement) and change the house accordingly. Shutting off the lights as someone leaves the room.
