In this world riddled with tech, the thing that happens most often is gadgets going obsolete. We can have all the software updates we want, but the hardware does sooner or later give way to more modern hardware, and that is when many of us chuck the cellphones and move to buy new ones. PCs can still go the upgrade way longer, but there is little choice when things come to mobile phones. Ergo, we find the Revive Smartphone concept especially interesting with its quality and ability to go for hardware upgrades as easy as a PC does.
Designed by Nau Architects, the luxurious pod home they call “Living Roof” is a concept that could theoretically keep you in luxury anywhere in the world. The pod could be placed at the top of a hotel, it could be placed deep inside a rainforest, and it would provide the same level of comfort and service. It is capable of generating the required electricity by itself, using photovoltaic cells on its body for solar energy and tiny wind turbines that can also capture rain water. Living Roof could be a lounge, sleeping quarters or an office, a perfect mobile home, if you will.
