The Sunset House of Innovation shows that high-tech does not have to look techy.

This warm contemporary interpretation of a traditional California ranch home is situated on one acre. The 6,413-square-foot home wraps around a courtyard pool to capture beautiful views of Mount Diablo from nearly every room. Window walls transform the central great room into a dramatic indoor/outdoor living experience. When this fully-loaded idea house was first revealed by Sunset Magazine in collaboration with Popular Science Magazine, it demonstrated the future of technology in everyday living with green features like rooftop solar panels, a rooftop herb and vegetable garden, water cisterns, automated lighting levels and temperature control systems, to the latest in innovative gadetry.
