California-based designer Gregory Kloehn finds himself traveling frequently to New York and in need of a place to stay when in town. So he bought a dumpster for $2,000 and installed a bath, kitchen, bed, and sun deck. Adding wheels, he can tow it anywhere, but it's mostly parked in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

In other news, bike-sharing service Spinlister launches an Android app this month, and there's a giant blue chicken in Trafalgar Square. See the headlines after the jump.
