A Futuristic Mobile Home Can Crawl Its Way Across Nearly All Surfaces

Posted by in categories: futurism, habitats, robotics/AI

The design is a cubic frame on six mechanical legs that looks like it emerged from futuristic sci-fi movies. The mobile home is able to traverse on almost any terrain including steep hills and mountain gorges with its mechanical legs that are enhanced with 2 inches (5 cm) of non-slippery rubber layers and two deployable spikes on the bottom of each piece for easy bolting on the ground.

The mobile home can lay its foundation while remaining uplifted from the ground, descending, or sitting on the ground.

The mobile home’s interior design comes with high-tech elements inspired by a futuristic architectural perspective. The windows of the mobile home are equipped with smart glass technology that can block sunlight when needed. Enchev also used automated furniture and smart technological gadgets in his design. With its integrated storage space, water tanks, and power cells, the mobile home enables its residents to live off-grid comfortably.

This Woman Designed Her Own Small House Made From 3 Shipping Containers

Posted by in categories: food, habitats

This magnificent shipping container container home near Lake Taupo, New Zealand, is worth checking out. This compact shipping container house was designed and built by Brenda Kelly of IQ Container Homes, and it has been raised to provide views of Lake Taupo. Three 20-foot shipping containers were used to form the tiny house’s design. Inside, there’s an open living area and kitchen that take use of the views, as well as a sliding door that leads to a deck with stairs leading down to the yard. This amazing concept, which includes covered parking beneath the container home design and a covered terrace with amazing views of the surrounding area, is guaranteed to inspire you.

The living area and kitchen are open-plan in the shipping container home. A plywood accent wall, which matches the living room wall and serves as a backdrop for the bed, can be found. A closet with sliding mirrored doors is on the opposite wall, and the bed lifts to show even additional storage. A plywood accent wall might be found in a tiny bedroom. When visitors come to visit, the shipping container home contains a home office with a wide desk that can be converted into a bed.

The IQ Container houses are made of non-corrosive Corten steel, are built to last, and are 100% recyclable when they are no longer needed. They can work with you on a custom design that matches your needs, or they can use eco-principles like passive solar and cross ventilation in their basic practical designs. Off-site building reduces waste and disruption on the job site.

Couple Build Amazing Shipping Container Home For Debt-Free Living

Posted by in categories: habitats, internet

Meet Jaimie and Dave, shipping container homeowners who decided to make their dreams come true by building a tiny house out of shipping containers. On their website, you can follow their incredible tiny house journey and learn everything there is to know about building a tiny home. Their tiny house ambitions began after they realized that no matter how many hours they worked or how much money they saved, keeping up with the others around them was weighing them down. They realized they didn’t want to do it any longer, so the pair took a life-altering decision to change the course of their narrative.

After erecting a little house on their new property, the primary intention was to be mortgage-free. They had a small savings account and some basic abilities. Jaimie is an accountant/controller who has never been afraid of a challenge and enjoys the thrill of problem-solving and thinking outside the box. Dave is a fabricator, so metal was right up his alley, and Jaimie is an accountant/controller who has never been afraid of a challenge and enjoys the thrill of problem-solving and thinking outside the box. They convinced themselves that they could accomplish it and set off on their quest.

They spent months scouring the internet for information on how to build a shipping container home and reading all they could find. They discovered they were practically precisely where they started after months of investigation and study. The couple had no idea how to construct a shipping container home. They discovered the internet, as well as a few of resources from other DIYers, to be somewhat useful, but nothing that worked with what the couple intended to achieve. So they reasoned that putting two metal boxes together and making them livable couldn’t be that difficult, and that it couldn’t be that expensive.
