Rolling House

The Roll It is an experimental house design that was developed at the University of Karlsruhe. To use the house in a different way, just walk along the inside to roll it to create a new up and down. There's a bed, an exercise area, and even a kitchen with a sink. I really wish I could find an explanation of how that last one works.

Japanese capsule hotels just became 5 Star, I can see it now. I would love one room in my house to be this. They should be should as house extension kits.

 I wonder if it floats? 

Last I checked, we're not that advanced yet...
COOL!!!!!!
You know, this could be an interesting take on the sort of clubhouse shed thing, big vehicle axle as a bearing and a support either side, make some kind of insane hamster wheel of various activities...  
 good idea it would roll like a hamster wheel without going anywhere look at my idea too for a rolling two room house its on this comment page somewhere

 what if you took a long rectangle and placed it in between two of them and put a chain so that they roll in sync and when you want you can stop, open a hatch crawl through the rectangle (you could make it as tall as you so you could walk through it) and close the hatch behind you and then make your way to the other side open the hatch and you are in a different room. the center rectangle would be attached to the center of the rolling THING and you would use the hatch to get out (after rolling halfway so its on the opposite side of the rectangle hallway) instead of getting out on the side. and in the middle you could drive tent stakes to hold it (neighbor proof :-D)
