Back in the 1950s, Disney built a futuristic home in the Tomorrowland section of their park in Anaheim. It was so futuristic, it featured things like microwaves, plastic furniture, and a bubbly X-wing-shaped floorplan. Well, it was torn down in 1967 but now they're looking to revisit the idea of giving park-goers a look into their own domestic futures, with a newly designed $15 million state-of-the-art dwelling.

Part of a domestic partnership between Disney, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, and LifeWare, the 5,000 sq. ft. home will feature tons of touch screen surfaces and counters that give suggested recipes based on what new groceries you place on them. Mirrored closets will be able to see what you're wearing and suggest complementary outfits or articles of clothing.

But how smart, is too smart? Rumors suggest that the home will also shave you while you sleep, beat your games on expert and veteran levels, and make death threats to neighbors and high-ranking city officials so you don't have to.

Just the right amount of smart.
