In current world technological improvements and innovations are inseparable from everyday lifestyles everywhere around the world. There are some obvious and not so obvious correlations and analogies between approaches to sustainable living in space and on earth. These environments have many similar kinds of technical and operational priorities. Key among these are needs for appropriate transportation and construction systems, efficient energy, effective and environmentally-responsive waste management and life support systems, maintenance and repair provisions, and emergency accommodations. Space technologies have been and continue being implemented in housing and construction industry. Understanding current problems and challenges in construction and housing helps to form and outline strategies and techniques those industries require to be developed and implemented in order to meet sustainability criteria and help to shape responsible living practices. This paper investigates levels of feasibility of making cutting edge technologies be a part of our everyday life. To do so several common for space applications techniques are compared and analyzed.

Technology transfer often faces barriers in many sides of life: social, economic, individual, cultural, and political and depend on five important characteristics: - Relativity; - Compatibility; - Complexity; - Trialability; - Observability. These attributes are common for technology transfer in many if not all industries and spheres of human life. However, housing industry may be unique because it includes not only technological aspect but also psychological and behavioral aspects of life. This paper investigates technological possibilities and psychological aspects of implementing them into design and everyday lifestyle.
