Real Estate

Roller House0

My girlfriend and I are looking for a new house.  As such, we both tool around on the Internet now and then looking for something in our price range.

This, however, came as quite a surprise:

Looks like a giant coffee can, I know, but there ya go.  It’s a house. The interior is much more appealing:

 It doesn’t hurt that a pretty girl is apparently provided with the house. . .

This experimental housing, developed at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, is divided into three different sections, each dedicated to a specific function.  In one section, there is a bed and a table; in the second, an exercise area; and in the third, there’s a fully functional kitchen with a sink.

I have no idea where the bathroom is, so don’t ask.  All that I can say is that it better have one hell of a seal on the lid for when you’re rolling around in your house.  


Structurally, the house is designed around four support rings over an inner shell.  The outer shell is translucent—specifically designed for sponsor advertising logos.

It looks pretty comfy, and I love the idea.  But I can’t see how it would necessarily save space, as you would still need room to roll your lodging around to get to . . .I dunno . . .the refrigerator or something.

And, anyway, it’s not for sale.
