Figuring out what tomorrow’s technology will look like is what we try to do every single day on The Verge, and smart home tech is an increasingly big part of that. So finally, we decided to just build a home and see how smart we could make it.

A few months ago, our team and our friends at Curbed went down to Texas to oversee the construction and setup of what we’re calling the Home of the Future. And we invited MythBusters’ Grant Imahara to come along.

We’ve put together a six-episode series, starting with the home’s construction and going all the way through how we powered it, wired it, secured it, and what it’s like to live in it. Grant walks through the process every step of the way, until the home is finally ready to be moved into.

You can watch our trailer for the series above. Episodes will run weekly on YouTube starting next Monday, August 6th. Over here at The Verge, we’ll be posting the videos too and running stories alongside them that dive deeper into the elements that bring the Home of the Future together. And there’ll be plenty more over at Curbed.

Ready? If you’re eager to start, you can catch up on our first season of Home of the Future right here, where we look at some of the smartest homes around the globe.
