Roll, Roll, Roll Your House... Rollit, Experimental Mobile Micro Housing

Students from several departments at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany have designed and constructed a most interesting prototype of a circular mobile micro home: the Rollit.  The simple, elegant architectural design provides the most efficient use of space one is likely to achieve.

The outer shell has four evenly spaced support rings and is lined with a translucent membrane that functions as further support, as well as to provide natural lighting to the home. Inside, three levels are panelled with thin (15mm) slats of laminated structural board, providing a handsome light interior. Each level of the Rollit has a separate function: a sleeping and study area, a kitchen with a sink, and an exercise cylinder.

Though it may be that bathroom necessities are to be fulfilled outside of the Rollit, the top level contains three closeted areas.  Two are, no doubt, the kitchen and the sink areas, but the third may be a WC or a portable shower...?

You don't even need a driver's license for this mobile home.  You just Rollit! (LoveIt!)
