rEvolve: turn to face the sun

 

Designed by students at Santa Clara University, rEvolve is a 238 sq ft solar-powered house, built on a revolving platform that moves with the sun. The aim is to optimise the amount of sunlight its panels can absorb, but it's also great for sun-loving residents who can soak up the sunshine during any hour of the day. The house cost $61,000 to build and the platform cost an additional $25,000. Could this be used to maximise the entertaining space of a penthouse roof terrace?
