Apparently the UK’s first ‘Google House’ is being kitted out in a flat in Streatham. Will Davies, head of property maintenance firm aspect.co.uk said the “normal flat”, on a very normal street, is being fitted with all of the future hi-tech gadgets and gizmos that make it the house of the future, today. “We wanted to do this in a normal abode to show that this is not just for the Super Rich, it’s for anyone from any social demographic,” said Davies.
The key thing is, how long will it last before the place gets done over. According to UK Crime Stats, there were 84 burglaries in Streatham in September.
