There is always the threat and risk of a post nuclear apocalypse here on earth ever since the US dropped a couple of atom bombs over at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but we got to thank the heavens that nothing of that sort has happened since then despite all the rhetoric from wayward nations. Well, the Boy Scouts do ask us to be prepared, so why not toy around with the idea of a post-apocalyptic housing concept? The Japanese-inspired EDV-01 from Daiwa House is more or less what you call an instant home – just press a single button and they will spring up immediately, albeit being pretty small even by Japanese standards at 6m x 2.5m x 2.4m. Still, they are quite the sturdy player as they tip the scale at 10 tons, although we do wonder how this is going to be transported - definitely not using your standard truck, right? Features in the EDV-01 include a bathroom, kitchen, beds, and satellite connectivity just in case the phone networks fail to work. As for juice, it can be powered via fuel cells, batteries and solar panels.
