Interview: What's it really like to build your own tiny house and live in it? - Images We cover a lot of tiny houses here at New Atlas, but what's it actually like to build your own and live in it, day to day. Read on as we chat with the creators of the Shedsistence tiny house, Robert and Samantha Garlow, for an insider's take on the pros and cons of embracing the tiny house lifestyle. The Garlows recently completed their Shedsistence tiny house, a towable home on wheels measuring 24 x 8.6 x 13.5 ft (7.3 x 2.6 x 4 m) and weighing in at 9,930 lb (4,504 kg). Inside, there's a total of 204 sq ft (18.9 sq m) of floorspace, though the usable living space is less as they installed an externally-accessed gear room to house all their camping, kayaking, and related outdoors equipment. The pair built Shedsistence themselves on a low budget.

BMW R1200 R Digimoto Motorcycle Concept In an attempt to bridge the gap between virtual and actual reality, industrial designer Christian Zanzotti, GRAYDEV, and Wunderlich worked together to design and prototype a custom BMW R1200 R in virtual reality. Sounds a bit strange we know, but taking a closer look at the specs of this bike display not only a knowledge of custom bike outfitting but a well-ascribed assumption of where concept development is soon heading. Known as the Digimoto, the concept features a BMW Boxer Engine held within the modified R1200R frame. It sits atop aluminum-milled wheels wrapped within a set of standard racing tires and includes a hand-welded aluminum tank, a laser-cut rubber racing seat, and a Makrolon brake light. The concept also puts sensors and cameras on the motorcycle that record any information around the bike. The accrued data is then translated into rider-legible information, displaying it onto the visor of the paired helmet.

Since most major disasters often disrupt services and normal life for longer than 72 hours, we think it is a good idea to have a Bag that will allow you survive for an indefinite period of time.
