Architects Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins designed a building of nine apartments known as Reversible Density Lofts in Tokyo. Resembling a combination of Legos and fast food restaurant playgrounds, inside, each apartment features sloped floors, hard to find switches and no closets. The result is that occupants constantly lose balance and fall over and finding everyday items can be trying. Arakawa argues that this “makes you alert and awakens instincts, so you’ll live better, longer and even forever.” Each apartment had a $763,000 price tag when they first went on the market.

We found these “living quarters” over at Gizmodo. I’d really love to find out how many minutes you could actually spend inside this 8.5 foot cube while remaining completely sane, and how far the thing actually flies once a heftier gust of wind gets under it. But it does look cute. Kind of reminds me of a scene from an old school East European sci-fi flick. Obviously it’s a lot cheaper than a regular house, too, selling from $32,500 to $44,225. It does however, contain all the necessities of a home: a double bed, a kitchen, a shower, a toilet, a table that seats five (supposedly).
