TNS Web Dump: Walking houses and portable pizza ovens
Share This Article:
There’s no denying that technology makes our lives much easier. But I’m not convinced that this is necessarily always a good thing. It seems to me as if people are increasingly unwilling to do anything for themselves. Whether it’s a new gadget or just a way to do something quicker, we’re constantly inventing objects that enable us to make even less of an effort in the course of our daily lives. There might even come a day when we don’t even need to leave the house any more. I’m sad to say that that day may already have arrived after a Danish art collective built a walking house. To be completely fair to the Danish designers, the portable house does have some very real advantages. It would, for example, allow its owners to escape from rising flood waters (albeit at walking pace). Although one of the Danes plans to live in the house himself, he also points out that it would be ideal for the travelling community. As enticing as the idea of a walking house is, I’m still fairly sure that a caravan is both more useful and more cost-effective. It would probably be pretty difficult to take your house for a stroll down the M62. If a walking house sounds like your idea of fun then the next product is probably right up your street. Personally, I find that the worst thing about long car journeys is the fact that you end up being completely reliant on service stations. If you get hungry then you have no other option except to splash out on a half-empty sandwich and a tasteless coffee from a generic coffee chain.
