Microsoft's Concept Home

The first big hint that something is different at 16100 NE 159th Ave. is the front door: It has no keyhole.

The wall next to it, however, prominently features a touch-screen monitor. Look into the black panel above it, and an iris scanner will recognize your
eyeball's pattern of blood vessels, greet you by name on the screen and open the door. Popping a smart-card ID into the adjacent slot will yield the
same result.
