    At first sight interesting enough project (if it to finish)

    Can seem strange, but I had a similar idea of console designs, even has almost finished the project (somewhere on a disk lie Renders)

    Very successful use of similar designs from the point of view of space, on the small area of contact it is possible to construct an extensive complex, ease and durability, visibility and functionality

    How it is possible to contact editors of magazine?

    Most of those renders were absolutely pointless except to make the project look glossy. wheres a diagram showing how those technologies are employed? I could easily just make a beautiful design and INTEND and SAY that it is going to be green. From what is shown, that is exactly how this project comes across…

    From a certain angle, this reminds me of a stapler. Overall, the concept is interesting,

    It is brilliant design and very eco-friendly. Could be considered as future house. However, it is better if followed by description of domestic waste handling.
