I’m breaking my promise of no more tiny house designs, but this is a container house, which is slightly different. This design is based on a 20-foot container, which is on the smaller side, but you could go life-size with a 40-footer and a real truck if you wanted.

I’m sure this is something a lot of gamers have wanted over the years: a disc changer for their game console.

Same deal as a Nest thermostat, with a silver dial encompassing a screen, but given a HAL 9000 makeover. This could also be given personal assistant (Alexa, Siri) abilities, thanks to the speaker placement. The speaker and screen also lend themselves to intercom and security cam functionality.

Imagine a lane of highway that is laced with bumps for several miles. It hates you and your car, and doesn’t want you driving on it at all. If it could talk, it would yell at you to move to the next lane over. WHY on earth would I share this idea? Because it might improve traffic flow on congested highways, at least that’s my theory.

This could also be a desk (like this) or a conference table (obviously), but the sunken map makes for a good play area, which are common in gaming tables. The map can be a monitor as well, but I much prefer a light box setup.
