Dr Ian Pearson predicts robots will not only be commonplace but they will have rights, such as being treated with respect.
In fact, machines may even have to be paid for their services as artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more advanced, the expert claims.
Dr Pearson, fellow of the British Computer Society and the Royal Society of Arts and Commerce, predicts that Brits will have robots cooking and cleaning for them with billions of the machines worldwide.
The expert said: “Technology has come on leaps and bounds in the past few years alone and in only 10 years time we can expect our homes to have been completely transformed by technology.
“I can guarantee that our household appliances will not be as we know them today.
“By 2030 most appliances will be networked, so today’s latest smart features like being able to see what’s in your fridge from the office will be commonplace.
“Ovens and microwaves will talk to food packaging to get cooking instructions, as well as displaying augmented reality cooking guides for humans.
“Smart heating will heat the person, not the room, using directed infrared beams or smart fabrics.
“I can guarantee that our household appliances will not be as we know them today”

“Huge wafer-thin, high-res displays that can be viewed from any angle will occupy large areas of wall space, and often substitute for windows and paintings.
“Augmented reality will allow fully customisable home décor.
“Smart packaging and appliances will make routine food prep easier, while augmented reality could make virtual chefs to guide you through a new recipe.”
Dr Pearson was commissioned by AO.com to look ahead at appliances and robots.
He thinks that not only will robots clean every aspect of our homes, but “active skin” will give gamers full sensory virtual reality.
Dr Pearson, who predicted the invention of the text message, also says people won’t need to go to the shops because they will be able to print their own food with 3D printers.
He added: “By 2050 androids will do most of the cooking and will even have rights, they will have to be treated with respect and possibly paid.
“It’s such an exciting era that we are heading into and I’m looking forward to seeing what companies, such as AO.com , develop in their product range.”
