Compact Intelligent House in a container

3 Dec

After I posted the Egg House yesterday, I saw the Container House in Beijing. The designer is a master student of mechanical engineering. He and several friends spent 3 months and 120,000 RMB (about $17,000 ) to make a 9 square meters (81 square feet) house in a container.



The house is controlled through mobile phone. The phone can control the virtual landscapes of the room, folding and expanding of the furnitures, movement of the fixtures, and lighting. All the above functions can also be controlled through internet.

The house also has a wind turbine and a rooftop patio. The energy status of the house is also monitored through mobile phone.
