Your smart new home in 2050
The Container of Possibilities is a combination of Shell’s imagination and innovation at work, representing what an urban home in Asia could look like in the future.
Inspired by the scenarios created by the Asian student teams in the Imagine the Future contest, Shell worked with partners to transform the inside of a shipping container to demonstrate an urban Asian home of 2050.
This smart home has windows that automatically adjust throughout the day, eliminating the need for blinds or curtains. This feature significantly reduces energy consumption and air-conditioning costs.
All devices and appliances are remotely connected and can be controlled by smartphone, allowing residents to monitor and operate their appliances even while outside their home.
The Container of Possibilities was on show during the 2017 Make the Future Singapore Festival. It went on tour to Indonesia for the Shell Campus Week Bandung in October 2017, in Singapore during the International Energy Week in October 2017, and in Thailand for Make the Future in January 2018.
