See How the Soviet Government Developed Smart Houses
The Soviet Union developed its own smart house, Skype, Google Glass and even Playstation all the way back in the 1980s.
The Soviet Union was one of the biggest countries in the world, and its leaders were really into the scientific research. Especially in 1980s, there was a big dream about filling houses with new technical equipment like wireless home electronics, laptops, smart phones, or smart watches. They imagined these housed to be in a single system, fully connected to each other, what we call it ‘smart house’ nowadays.
