A House Built On A Giant Turntable That Can Be Remotely Turned To Face The Sun

October 10, 2016


This is a video of a home in Norway that was built on a massive turntable that can be remotely rotated for maximum sun exposure or to control the view out the windows. The view out my window? Heavy traffic. Always heavy traffic. Occasionally, an accident. The video is actually a news report about the home, but I believe it's in Norwegian so I didn't understand anything. They show the massive motor beneath the house that turns the platform, although I'm curious how the plumbing and electricity were handled. Who knows, maybe they weren't. Maybe they just shit in buckets then toss them out the window and turn the home so you can't see or smell them. That's what I would do. I solve problems with problems.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees if it doesn't spin fast enough for you to stick to the walls like riding a centrifuge, what's the point?

    The plumbing is all directed into the centre of the pillar that also contains the motor. Visible at 0:46 I'm guessing he can only /turn/ 360 (or 180 in each direction) not spin round and round and round.

  • Wow, what a pointless waste of money!

  • asdfadfs

    luckily money isn't destroyed when used and the alternative to wasting it is hoarding, so it's probably for the best

  • But think of all the alcohol and hookers that money could have bought!

    "Honey, could you turn the house around before I arrive? I want to get the groceries inside, thanks!"

  • You mean "Honey, kan du slå huset rundt før jeg kommer? Jeg ønsker å få dagligvarer innsiden, takk!"

    the screaming opossums and field rats would be distracting.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Do they have opossums in whatever magical lala land these non-english speaking heathens live?

    Oh, it's Norway. I sort of want to live in Norway.

    The kids with rooms in the back must have a vitamin D deficiency.

    After i lost my old job six months ago, I was blessed to stumble upon this awesome website that was a life-saver for me... They offer jobs for which people can freelance online from their home. Last check after working for them for three months was $12000... Great thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing skills and internet access... http://korta.nu/NDe

    Go away demon bot! I shall sprinkle sacred salts all around Geekologie (do not use this for your fried rice wizard) to prevent such demons from pillaging again.

    if we wanna get rid of disqus spambots just stop using it. the old ways were best anyway

    we had significantly LESS spam on the old comments. AND they were much more fun. gw went backwards here with this dsqus crap
    I still don't understand why they felt the need to switch, and I certainly don't understand why the old stuff had to be purged...but theres no way this could be considered an improvement :'(
    ...it doesn't even remind me of any scenes from the movie never back down. I miss Daisy

    After losing my last job six months back, i've been very lucky to know about this marvellous site online that literally saved me... They employ people to work from house. Last paycheck after working for them for 3 months was 12000 dollars... Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and good internet connection... http://korta.nu/MDe

  • asdfadfs

    this has never been in control. we were getting this shit since day one. Sometimes i suspect gw is renting out billboard space and that was why we even have these comments. specifically to host spambots
