Recently showcased at the Edinburgh Science Festival in Scotland, this amazing little wonder presented some of the leading innovations in low-carbon living. While this is just a prototype, this inspiring space is full of ingenious ways to create a small yet stylish existence through sustainable means. Watch a video below:


The Cube Project, spearheaded by Dr. Mike Page, is a scalable example of how consumers can live low-carbon lives. From its solar photovoltaic panels to composting waste management and a unique space-saving staircase, this space is meant to serve as inspiration for what can be achieved with the right materials and technology in any size of dwelling.

Given Dr. Page's background in psychology there is an additional layer on meaning connected to this endeavor. He poses the question: Why aren't we living sustainably when the technologies are within financial reach? What is the barrier in our psychology that prevents so many of us from taking those steps?
