Telecommuting is one of the nicest ways to work. Not only do you get to work from the comfort of your own home, but the environment digs it as it doesn't require that you actually commute. The drawback, you have to carve out one more space in your house to fit your home office. The Archipod
is like an office built within a giant acorn. While the exterior camouflage's nicely with the yard's foliage and plant life, the interior is like walking into 2001: A Space Odyssey
. The sphere, which measures about 10-feet in diameter, is prefabricated in small sections that are sized to be carried through a house -- great for people who only have access to their gardens through their home's backdoor.
The white interior of the Archipod includes power outlets, data ports, and electric heat. Natural light comes through port holdes on the side, as well as a skylight port hole. While we like the idea, we wonder if one of the benefits of working in the yard -- being amongst nature -- is lost with the limited windows in this concept.
