A home in the future could help you stay healthy. 

The smart home would collect a variety of data through various devices. 

For example, accelerometers and sensors in the home's floor would be able to detect if there was a change in a person's gate, which can be a sign of a stroke or an early sign of Alzheimer's disease. 

Smart toilets will be able to monitor hydration levels.

Architecture students at the University of Kansas School of Architecture have been working on the smart home for the last year.
