Roll it: Topsy Turvy Modular Housing

If you have any interest in living life like a hamster, this experimental modular housing unit may be for you! Roll it is a small home for one that includes everything you need made accessible by walking, thus rolling, the unit into the desired position. Practical or not, we think this is one clever idea.

Roll it was designed by students from University of Karlsruhe in Germany. It is made from four main support rings encircled by thin wooden slats that allow them to roll smoothly. The cushions and mattress are held on with Velcro and can be stowed away when not in use.

Openings on the ends and windows in the mid section allow light in. This impressive modular home contains a bed, a lounge chair, a table, built in storage, a shower, a kitchen sink and even a toilet (yikes!). If you live on flat terrain, perhaps this would make for an interesting guest house?
