Wow. Looking to live off the grid in style? [Jono Williams] just finished off his rather ambitious Skysphere project.
Using industrial materials (is that highway lamp post tower?), [Jono] designed and built his ultimate apartment tower out in the country. Kind of looks like a futuristic outlook or security post — something straight out of that [Tom Cruise] flick, Oblivion.
The project has been in the works for years, and [Jono] estimates its taken about 3000 hours so far — not to mention $50,000 USD in building materials. It’s solar powered, Android controlled, has a fingerprint scanner at the door, an integrated beer fridge in the couch, RGB LED lighting, WiFi, a stargazing platform, a custom queen size bed, his own AI voice, wireless sound, and automated heat management!
Sadly, it’s missing a bathroom — and you’ll be stuck using a hotplate in the non-existent kitchen. He plans on putting an outhouse nearby, but we can’t imagine you being able to live in this thing 24/7 — it looks like a fantastic weekend retreat though.
For more information you can check out his Facebook page for future updates of the project — and maybe version 2.0.
