To better utilise the space in your home you have
two houses in one.
Your nighttime furniture (TV, beds, lamps, dinner
table etc) are mounted on the 'ceiling', and your
daytime furniture (breakfast bar, wardrobe, desk [if
you work from home] etc)are mounted to the other
need to be around 5m or 16ft. When night
falls you just put away what you are doing, step
outside, press the button and Presto!, the house
revolves 180deg and you walk back inside. Of
course, the systems drains all of the water from the
toilet in the process, and refrigerators need to be
redesigned for this to work.
Houses could occupy half their current 'footprint',
reducing the destruction of valuable farming land.
We'll all learn to be neat freaks in no time.
expandable furniture to along with it

||Other than confusing the goldfish, this is a faultless idea.
||This would be a great way to clean out your gutters.
||I'm disappointed there's no attempt at living inside
||Finding your way to the bath down the mobius-strip
hallway could be challenging. "No no, you went the
wrong direction, just keep walking, it'll be on your
left, and stand on your head when you get there..."
||[+] A good idea. They are also making expandable furniture to accomodate smaller places. [see link]
||Hears distant "meows" as kitty is stuck back in day mode, behind the wall. Ouch.
||Simply mount all plumbing related rooms in a fixed
position along the spin access (or at the extremes as
the bearing for smaller construction), with the rest
of the house mounted around it.
||This also has the advantage of allowing you to stay in
those rooms during the flip, eliminating the need to
have a ground level door at night, both saving space
and increasing security.
||Some elasticised straps in your wardrobe will prevent
suits being messed up during the flip.
