These Booths Are Made For Walking

If You Don’t Like Them, You Can Take A Hike

Artists in Denmark have joined forces with US scientists to create a walking house - built on six hydraulic legs. They say it would make the ultimate home for beating floods or for dealing with the neighbours from hell. The home is solar- and wind-powered and has a mainframe computer which enables it to stroll at walking pace across all terrains.

FOOTNOTE: Express terrain.

Imagine the gridlock in the cities caused by cars...... now imagine the chaos if the houses started walking too!

Thanks for sharing this, David! I'm a real technology fan and thought this was cool. My niece is an exchange student in Denmark this year so I posted about it to her Facebook wall. I also googled it and there are tons of cool videos including a YouTube one of the house actually walking. How exciting!

Joy!

Blimey, it sounds amazing but I bet someone could hack in and then you might wake up standing in the middle of a duck pond or on top of mountain or something.
And I wonder if it would need shoes??
