Architectural Robotics Could Help Maximize Small Spaces

Architectural robotics are being tested at new residential developments in the Seaport, hoping to maximize the always decreasing square footage.

At the Watermark Seaport a 481-square-foot studio is testing out this new technology that makes small spaces like these feel bigger and more practical, according to Boston.com.

The luxury unit features a kitchen space along one wall, a bed area, living room space, floor to ceiling windows and high-end finishes.

The unique aspect is actually hidden within what appears to be a wall separating he bedroom and living room space.

On the side of the wall is a control panel, allowing the wall to be moved to the left or right, making either the bedroom space or living room space bigger.

Built into the movable wall are cabinets, closets, a pull out desk and even a space for the bed to slide in. These additions allow you to quickly tuck the bed away and transform the space into an office, or larger living space.

Called architectural robotics, this technology quickly and easily makes the most use of your space depending on your individual needs at any time and is conveniently controlled from your phone or the button.

Not only does it divide the space, but it unlocks potential for smaller spaces, especially since these size spaces are becoming increasingly popular on the market.

These technologies are currently still being tested at the Watermark and other cities around the country, but the developers at Ori Systems are hoping to get into real homes in 2017.
