What if you could live totally off the grid in a modern studio in the center of a city with a river view for under $110K? Barcelona design studio Magma Design has proposed just that.

LoftFloat is a stylish, solar-powered houseboat destined to be moored along Barcelona's Besos River or in standard berths in one of the city's three ports. At around 485 square feet, the compact units are cleverly designed with a central partition wall that houses the kitchen and separates the living and sleeping areas without obstructing the view.

We're not sure how stable these would be on the Charles, but it's an ingenious solution to urban overcrowding. Plus, you'd have choice seats for the Regatta and the Fourth of July fireworks!
