Universal Beehive Cell-like Capsule-Hotel-like Car Connectable into Buildings and Spaces
  [vote for,

Tagline: Create a framework that can interconnect like beehive cells into bigger multi- functional structures, and profit :)

This would be a beehive cell-like lightweight universal structure that can easily replace its wheels with any thing -- propellers, robotic arms, rocket engines, hooks for riding a mountain elevator, etc. It would be a versatile structure that lets human body be serviced/repaired in semi-automated ways, by going through specialized pipelines.

The air inside would be filtered, and the capsules could refill with food packages of diverse kind. All that people who live in these capsules would need, is water and electricity supply.

No ordinary buildings, no ordinary cars. Office, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and much more in one.


(1) Transparent ceiling, so we can see the stars at night,
(2) Special doors to connect other capsules to form more space,
(3) Wheels, so we can drive it like a car
(4) A weight mechanism, so we can change the position of the capsule (for example, by retracting the wheels) (upright or horizontal), and use clean windows to become city navigators, with fresh filtered air, and driving like a Segway,
(5) Expandable table to become an office,
(6) Hydrophobic nanoparticle surfaces to keep the interior dry, so we can shower
(7) Air conditioning and air filtration,
(8) Waterproofness, so we can use it as a boat or submarine through a lake or ocean,
(9) Robotic arms and tools mounting system, so we can do extra field work (such as dangerous, particularly delicate)
(10) Standard interface to get enough water and electricity to link with the refuel stations or autonomously pump from natural deposits like lakes,
(11) Wireless and satellite Internet comms to keep connected
(12) Aerogel insulators for walls, which can adapt to extreme environments, such as the polar regions,
(13) Special exercise pedals, so travelers can exercise to maintain health,
(14) Glass embedded with liquid crystals, so people can protect their privacy by changing the polarity of the current to make the glass opaque.
(15) Dehydrated food storage that can provide nutrients such as meat, coffee, etc., that can be supplemented when passing through a refuel station
(16) Stackable parking systems in the cities of the elevator track, to get capsules be hung on the sky-scraper structures,
(17) Integrated sensors that can automatically monitor people's health and automatically drive to the nearest hospital or reduce distance to it based on health risk,
(18) Special tunnels with medical services
(19) Embedded emergency cryogenic coolant to reduce the probability of death through automated hypothermia or cryonics,
(20) Air, water and food quality control to avoid the spread of diseases.

The idea is to address the following rather broadly found problems:

- Enabling people to work anytime anywhere
- Ensuring people's micro-climate and mobility
- Dealing with runaway climate change, even if it happens
- Ensuring that people don't get bitten by mosquitoes and infected by pathogens
- Avoiding widespread serious pandemic
- Reducing risk from gamma ray bursts. (so we can just dive to live in the oceans, and otherwise be okay in UV).
- Not dying without a fight.

The HiveCell Project. Have to get it done, or tell me why not. [Mindey, Mar 28 2020]

It worked for Neo... https://www.syfy.co...ly-not-gonna-happen
...but no room for the keg, fridge or gun cabinet. [whatrock, Mar 29 2020]


       Interesting for environments where you can't leave an enclosure, such as space, underwater, inhabitable atmospheres but if you can, what would the design pressure be for such collectivism?, when individual solutions maybe be more apt. An ulterior motivated Skynet sliding in under the radar?

       Is Mindey Beanangel?

       // Is Mindey Beanangel?   

       Most definitely not, but I'd love to know [beanangel].
Mindey, Mar 29 2020

       21, could be Vernon as well.
blissmiss, Mar 29 2020

       [yamahito] once suspected me to be [Vernon]'s Japanese relative, due to propensity for long ideas in the past. Who knows, maybe 21 is Vernon.   

       Me now has two outrageously realistic ideas -- applying linguistic similarity analysis to all annos to determine who is likely to be whom, as well as using LSTM neural net on all previous annos as a training set... to make guesses as to what would [MaxwellBuchanan], or [Jinbish], or [bristolz], or others who had fallen behind the event horizon (the "moment of now"), say to newly posted ideas.
Inyuki, Mar 29 2020

       That sounds like a damn fine idea.
21 Quest, Mar 29 2020

       Seconded ...   

       It's a variation on the old adage of "Ask yourself. what would Batman*/The Doctor**/Sherlock Holmes***/Captain Kirk**** do ?" but would be both interesting and amusing.   

       *Glower menacingly.
**It involves a sonic screwdriver and some improvisational engineering.
***Smoke a pipe and play the violin, and/or an elaborate disguise.
****Try to strike up a conversation, then start a fist-fight.

       [whatrock], a difference from Neo in the Matrix, is that he had not had the autonomy with that cell he spent first part of his life... and, of course, many other features weren't present.

       A bug in a can.

       I want an RV that does all that, but it would cost too much.
Voice, Mar 29 2020

       // I want an RV that does all that, but it would cost too much.   

       Humanity had afforded supercomputers in everyone's pockets,... If we think in terms of supply chains, and re-usability of parts for multiple product lines, the low price point could be achieved...
Mindey, Mar 29 2020

       // it would cost too much. //   

       Compared to what ?   

       Presumably you already spend money on most or all the services and facilities it would provide.   

       "What would be the difference in cost" is the relevant question, shirley ?

       This reminds me of the escapist fantasies of childhood, so [+].

       // This reminds me of the escapist fantasies of childhood, so [+].   

       Like, being out in the fun zone all the time, moving, to new geographic domains, and communicating with fellow explorers of the road-less wilderness? :)

       Like, bringing all other sentient species in the Galaxy under your ruthless domination ?

       // Like, bringing all other sentient species in the Galaxy under your ruthless domination ?   

       Well, just imagining possible futures for real estate industry, and automotive industry.
