It’s Got Legs

September 3rd, 2018 by Alison McKinney

N55We have often talked about how inspiring working environments have a positive effect on employee engagement. Well here’s a whacky idea for you!

Danish architect studio N55 has developed a dwelling that literally walks about. Seems a bit Star Trek, but it’s true.

Built on six insect like, independently manoeuvrable hydraulic legs, and reaching a top speed of (wait for it) 60 meters an hour, this high tech, robotic invention can travel on almost any terrain, offering an ever-changing view from its numerous windows.

It also has lots of other features that we like too. It is solar and wind-powered, has an eco-friendly compostable loo, collects rainwater and has an environmentally friendly system that produces hot water. As well as this, it stands 3.5 meters high, avoiding floods and the designers say a wood burner to produce CO2 neutral heat can be added as well as a small greenhouse to grow crops.

This creeping crawling contraption can be programmed at a walking pace. It’s been widely believed that walking can help focus the mind, increases concentration and creates a calmer mental state. Ideal for productivity and engagement.

With these features in mind, and the clear benefits of occupying such a space, why not adapt this remarkable invention into a nomadic office! Just imagine that.
