    Lovin' this... :) real fresh thinking, especially in a time when living spaces are becoming more and more compact.

    Needs to be bigger though, both in diameter and length. I could well imagine several of them in a line as well, forming a cylindrical tunnel with each module featuring different functionality.

    I think the W/C one could be a bit sketchy though. heheh :eek: :p

    Maybe they could string them together and form a cylinder, then upon turning certain segments, the cylinder could come up with new functionalities. or putting the rings in different orders yield different results.

    EDIT: oops, didn't see iGav already had this idea... oopsy

    As a kid, I had a wonderful time at an amusement center that had a kid-size tunnel maze. I'm not sure I need a hamster wheel, but I'd like to have an adult-size maze of tunnels like some of those fancy hamster enclosures have, so I can relive that experience.

    Hmm, this would only be useful for one person... I mean, what if one person wants to sleep and the other wants to sit down?

    and that is why you'd need/want more than one. ;)

    Hmm ... I feel there to be glaring contradictions (in my own ghastly mind). Individually they seem to be at one with a freedom at ends with domestic conformity, and attractive as a consequence. But the pre-fab linking of many seems to compromise all that and turn it into something far too insular.

    But then I've not been out today ... so perhaps I'm just talking guff.

    Nevertheless a good find, and I liked looking into the work of the architect AllesWirdGut.
