SkySphere – The 360 Solar Powered Tree House
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
Who didn’t want a tree house when they were young? Who still doesn’t love the idea of being able to climb into a small house and enjoy a view while you take a break from the rush of everyday life? Seems like you may have the opportunity to enjoy half of that dream soon enough.
When Jono Williams wanted a room with a view the classic treehouse came to mind, but with a twist. Rather than rely on a tree, why not build something which could go anywhere? So the SkySphere was created from his background as a graphics designer and plastics engineer.
The initial SkySphere is located in New Zealand and features a ladder (like any good tree house inspired design) to access the main features of the building.
So its late at night and you want to do something, the SkySphere comes with a set of colour changing lights, perfect for anything from a romantic meal to a late night of gaming with friends. What could help with those dreams? Well maybe the high-speed internet accessibility, meaning this tree house has gone full techno, including a wireless surround sound system and fingerprint-based entry system (you can always ask for a password out the window though).
Of course, no modern house would be complete without a remote control, of which the SkySphere supplies through an app on your phone controlling everything from the lights and doors to the refrigerated beer dispenser.
The only thing missing from this amazing modern take on a tree house is the bathroom, so getting a portaloo and portable shower may be on the cards as well.
So who would be interested in going and staying in the SkySphere? Personally I might ask them to put up one-way class first before the neighbours start to get nosey.
