Zero Gravity Rotating Home

Here’s a first: a rotating home designed to simulate zero gravity. It’s called the Phalanstery Module and “is up and down is constantly changing; making one rotation per hour, two people within the space will probably crash into each other once every seven and a half minutes.” Video after the break.

Built by an architecture collective called Bureau Spectacular, the Module is said to be based on a comic book created by Bureau Spectacular member Jimenez Lai, about a spaceship journey carrying Earth’s last survivors to a new world.
