World's First Walking House Can Avoid Natural Disasters, Uses Solar and Wind Power
October 21st, 2008 by Ariel Schwartz
What if your house could simply walk away from natural disasters? This house can. Designed by an art collective in Denmark, the 10 foot high house is solar and wind-powered and can walk across a variety of terrain. It is equipped with a living room, bed, toilet, kitchen, and wood stove, and is controlled by an internal mainframe computer.
The house, which is built on six hydraulic legs, is supposedly a way for people living in flood-prone areas to escape high waters unscathed.
Eventually, the house’s designers anticipate the £30,000 price tag going down enough for low-income families to afford it.
