A Peek Inside the Disney Smart House

In the year 1999 Disney released a futuristic movie they called Smart House. This family-friendly film was truly ahead of its time and if you have not seen it you are in for a real treat. It all begins when a young boy who is grieving the loss of his mother enters a competition to win the smart house of his dreams. While we won’t spoil the rest of the movie for you, we will take a look at what type of technology was inside the home. Many of the things found in the home may have seemed futuristic in the 90’s but not today! Let’s take a look!

Smart Assistant Pat

In the heart of the house, you will find a very intelligent and helpful smart assistant named Pat. Pat is a form of artificial intelligence that helps run the household. She can control appliances, adjust lights, control the HVAC system, and much more. Very similar to our modern day Alexa, Pat can do many things for the family making their lives easier.

VR Without Helmets

Also controlled by Pat, the house features something really cool. For those looking to escape to a different world, Pat provided the family with VR without helmets. This was a totally cool part of the movie but a bit far-fetched. While we do have really great VR helmets and goggles today, we have not yet achieved device free virtual reality.

Pat Knows How To Throw A Party

When the father of the house gets a date he really wanted to show her a good time. With the help of Pat, they turned the home into a dance club complete with video screens and 90’s music. This was truly impressive and was one of the best parts of the movie!

To find out more about what is inside Smart House, you should see the movie for yourself. It is a truly fun film and will really make you think about how advanced this house was. Many of the things inside are now technologies that we all have come to know and love.
