House has everything, including six walking legs

Commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre in 2008, Danish art collective N55’s mobile home invention is a ‘modular dwelling system that enables persons to live a peaceful nomadic life, moving slowly through the landscape or cityscape with minimal impact on the environment.’ It can do many nifty things, such as collecting rainwater, heating up water with solar energy, and can be fitted with a greenhouse for food and a wood burning stove for warmth (to be specific, ‘CO2 neutral heating’). Oh, and it has six legs that walk at a leisurely human speed. It’s the kind of caravan that extreme geeks dream about when they want to do some planetary exploration in their own backyard.
