PassivDom 3D-Printed House is Fully Autonomous with Zombie-Proofing Options

The modulOne from PassivDom is quite an interesting house. Or, to be more accurate with the company’s description, “autonomous 3D-printed mobile house”. The Ukrainian company behind the house says it is “mobile and transportable house with Passive House parameters”. It is claimed that the thermal characteristics are high enough for the house to use 20 times less energy than an ordinary building. Of course, this comes in rather handy as autonomous function and off-grid living are the major selling points of this house.

Venus Flytrap Potted Plant

Venus Flytrap is a plant with a unique reputation, one of the few plants in the world that actually “hunt” for their food. We can obviously understand the lure of having a plant like that in a pot and that would be quite a wise decision. The plants grow between three to ten centimeters depending on the time of the year, and might very well add to its place with its pink or bright red basins that it uses to lure and prey on insects.

The futuristic Tron kitchen


It’s been a long time since we saw anything Tron-inspired. We’re liking this kitchen from Milan-based architectural and design Studio AquiliAlberg. It looks futuristic with a clean design. Yet we can’t help thinking that the kitchen lacks lightcycles… Lightcycles in the kitchen? I must be going mad.

Pirate ship bedroom I’d go to war for


Admit it, this is the bedroom you’ve always wanted; because there is no friggin’ way someone would pass on a bedroom with a pirate ship, rope bridge, slides and ropes. Designed by Steve Kuhl for a six-year old, the bedroom has a “floating” pirate ship that is connected to a “jail cell” by means of a rope bridge. A rope’s suspended from the ship’s hull for quick access to the closet, and another awesome addition is a completely hidden spiral slide, for the kid to travel downstairs in awesomeness.
