Have you ever loved the place where you lived, but weren’t really a fan of your neighbors or perhaps the city you were in? Wouldn’t it be incredibly revolutionary if your home could just simply walk off to a place that better suits YOUR preferences?
The future is now: this mind-blowing modular dwelling system was created by Danish company N55 and not only does it make for an extremely cozy residence but the innovative unit can actually walk! While it’s pretty awe-inspiring to just look at, wait until you hear about its extraordinary features.
I know, I know. You’re probably wondering how a walking home would even be possible – especially after hearing that the module is eco-friendly and makes a minimal impact on the environment. The hexagonal small house collects energy from its surroundings from using solar cells and small windmills, and it isn’t just limited to walking on infrastructure like roads! It’s actually capable of moving on all sorts of terrain, allowing residents to enjoy a relaxing, nomadic life.
This walking home can comfortably house a family of four, although it can infinitely be expanded for larger family structures or even into a Walking Village when more units are added!
According to the home’s manual, the module can be created from an assortment of different materials and features a framework made from steel, aluminum or wood. In addition, the small unit can be covered with steel, aluminum, wood or even semi-permeable textiles. The windows are made of polycarbonate and insulation ranges from thin plates to wool.
Each of the six legs on the mobile home work as an independent unit with their own accumulators and linear actuators. It’s designed to move at a slower, human-like pace of about 196 feet per hour, and always maintains three legs on the ground while walking to help provide necessary stability.
The home also features a system for collecting rain water for re-use, as well as one for solar heated hot water and a composting toilet system. There can even be a greenhouse unit added on where delicious food can be grown as needed, as well as a small wood burning stove to provide CO2 neutral heating!
Looks pretty comfy, right? Would you live in this one-of-a-kind walking unit?
