In Topic: Well.... the place hasn't changed all that much

So if you had a choice between:

  • Web Dev (asp.net),
  • Metro Development (Win8/Win10 apps),
  • Sharepoint Dev, and
  • BI Dev (data sciences included)
I would probably give up programming altogether if that was what I had to choose from. ;)

I know...

 

Sometimes you just do whatever put food on the table...

In Topic: What Do You Think Of Micro Apartments ?

Not really a fan of those pods. Portability wise they're beaten by a flat-pack design, which for similar transport costs could provide far more shelter units (What is needed for humanitarian aid missions) or a larger living/work space, or more easily moved in smaller pieces (what would be desirable for research stations). Also not a fan of the solar array arrangement. 

 

I think this is one of those "stylish and expensive" products, like some of the dress on fashion show.

 

container turned living space does exist (or the other way around, living space, container-compatible).  and so is fifth wheel. 

 

regarding the solar, i think i understand their logic. sun rise, on top, and set. they need to maximize each position. there were research done on this (not the pod) and there is a reason why leaf on trees are the way they are.

cool idea, but no go for me, no toilet or bathroom

 

It has a bathroom, with toilet and shower.

thanks for that ecocapsule link.

 

cool idea, but no go for me, no toilet or bathroom. it is interesting to know that it can generate around 750 W from wind...

 

i also would like to add: there are people living in travel trailer (5th wheel). and some inside truck camper (also another option for me before knowing about Tiger Vehicle, as I need truck chasis because i love to hike mountains).

 

--edit--

 

Nanook, cool home.
