Entire cities suspended under water within a giant transparent bubble, as well as "super skyscrapers" that surpass the Shard and “Earth-scrapers” built up to 25 storeys below ground level could be a reality within the next century, the SmartThings Future Living Report predicts.

The self-sustaining bubble, fully equipped with 3D printed houses as well as schools, offices and parks, would use the surrounding water to both supply itself with oxygen and generate hydrogen fuel.

Personal flying drones, which academics believe could become the standard method of transport, could also eliminate the need to pack for a holiday by transporting your entire home to your holiday destination. British space scientist  Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock co-authored the report commissioned by Samsung’s SmartThings app, along a team of experts including the futurist architects and lecturers at the University of Westminster Arthur Mamou-Mani and Toby Burges and the urbanists Linda Aitken and Els Leclerq.Personal flying drones, which academics believe could become the standard method of transport, could also eliminate the need to pack for a holiday by transporting your entire home to your holiday destination.

The 3D printed homes would be equipped with ‘smart’ LED surfaces that automatically adapt and reconfigure the interior layout of the home to suit the inhabitants’ changing moods. Advanced medical technology could also allow for health diagnosis pods to be installed in every home, which could supply medication or even a remote surgeon following a diagnosis, and make it more difficult for anyone to ‘pull a sickie’ from work due to the accuracy of the health pods.

A new breed of fast food service could be available through the 3D printing of food, allowing you to download your desired dish from your favourite chef and have it printed out and ready to eat in minutes.

“Over the next century we will witness further seismic shifts in the way we live and interact with our surroundings” said Dr Aderin-Pocock.

“Just 10 years ago, technology like SmartThings would have been inconceivable, yet today developments like this let us monitor, control and secure our living spaces with the touch of a smartphone” she said.

“Our homes are becoming smarter and can now detect the presence of things like people, pets, smoke, humidity, lighting and moisture,” said James Monighan, SmartThings UK managing director.

Some of the predictions in the latest report may not be too far off. Earlier this year, a Chinese manufacturer unveiled a prototype of the world’s first passenger drone at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. The human-sized drone, operating on an autonomous multi-sensor navigational system, can carry one person to a height of 11,500 ft (3,505 metres) at a cruising speed of 63 miles per hour, Reuters reported.

Last year, Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut also revealed his plans to build a cluster of subaquatic eco-friendly villages consisting of “oceanscrapers” made with 3D printed recycled plastics that would be built to spiral downwards below the sea level for up to 1,000 metres (3,280ft).

The development known as the Aequora project, slated for completion in 2045, would house up to 20,000 people, featuring offices, hotels, sports fields and farms over 250 floors.

And the 3D printing of food was introduced as far back in 2013, with the launch of the Foodini – a new appliance that can print food where different ingredients are built up in layers after a design is selected on the device’s control panel, allowing it to produce anything from pizza or pasta to cakes in a variety of shapes and spelling out names with letters.

So maybe "Fax me a pizza" will become reality after all. Underwater cities, built at enormous expense with virtually no escape if something goes wrong, as it inevitably will. No thanks. Cheaper, easier and a helluvalot safer to build in the middle of an Australian, American or African desert. A woman in Toronto writes on another site that she lives in an underground apartment with a connection to the subway. Goes to work on the train, with an underground connection to her work building. Groceries, other shopping all available underground. She only emerges when the weather weather is nice.

It's amazing that some of us reading this now will be alive and well in the 22nd Century and get the chance to see all these for themselves.

Did you know that global food production is currently sufficient to feed every human on this planet to obesity and that the only reason there are starving people around is because of poor global food distribution and excessive food wastage by all societies?

The problem is that seldom - if ever - are these "future tech prognosticators" correct... They tend to project today's problems into the future, forgetting that the future will have it's own problems, challenges and way of doing things... As a example... I've read a lot of articles written by "futurists" in the very early 1900's... And practically everyone of them just saw their present with a few bizarre "trimmings"... Heck even as recently as the 1950's they were saying that we would all own flying cars have robots doing the ironing.

I picture every inch of this planet used for housing, my goodness, where will the sea life, plant life and animals live? In cages for the use of man? I'll pass.
