Ha, yes, Battar, you pretty much describe my life living in SF and NYC (until I moved to Portugal and actually just bought a house with a lot more space than I could ever afford in the U.S., unless I lived in a very undesirable place). And you back up my point about this stuff having to be economical for the people in the small spaces. I still think it's a super-cool design.

People who live in small apartments often live on small budgets too - any soluion must be cheap and clever. How did we manage up to now? We used cable spools as coffee tables, maximisd space utilization with stackable storage boxes, stacked books on each other instead of on shelves, got rid of our junk, or moved to Portugal where real estate is cheaper.

I was really impressed by the video! Having lived in tiny studios and one-bedrooms (that were really studios with an extra cubby hole for a bed) in SF and NYC, I can see how this would really be a great solution for small spaces. Leave it to MIT to come up with something so ingenious. If it could be affordable for people who can only afford these small-space flats (which is why most people live in them in the first place!) then that would be even better. Cool story, Cabe.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Ever wanted your own giant robot? Three engineers did, and now they want to make 15-ft, fighting MegaBots a household name.

For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
