A House With Legs -- And It Knows How to Use Them!

A House With Legs -- And It Knows How to Use Them!

Sometimes we get tired of looking out the window and seeing the same concrete landscape, but we can't afford a weekend home to change things up. That said, if we lived in this concept we wouldn't have to daydream about a second home. The N55 Walking House is inspired by horse powered carriages you may remember from the hours you played Oregon Trail. Each of the six legs works autonomously with three legs always on the ground to provide stability. The structure moves at a slow pace similar to a human's walking speed.

The whole system is totally green. It collects energy using solar cells and small windmills, it also gathers rain water and has a system for solar heated hot water. A small greenhouse unit can be added for growing your own herbs and veggies. Also features a composting toilet and a small wood burning stove.

Five more photos after the break...
