IBM Research has announced that it’s working on a highly efficient, low-cost system that’s capable of harnessing the energy of 2,000 suns. The system, which is targeted at dry regions such as southern Europe, Africa, the south west of North America, South America, and Australia, will have an overall efficiency of 80% — and, miraculously, be able to provide a source of fresh water, too.

here’s a close up view of the back of Malator house on the Welsh coast – one of Future Systems few smaller commissions before the death of its visionary founder Jan Kapicky:

You can look through the house to the rugged and beautiful coast of Wales at St. Brides Bay. The house is set right into its own man-made mound on the top of the hill.

Most of it is underground for passive energy control.



The front of the simple Welsh hilltop home is wide open to the view to the coast. Yet it looks almost organic, set into the hill like a glinting jewel. With no taming of the wilderness around it, the house becomes one with the land.


Pods within the house concentrate the plumbing needs into one compact (mass production) unit that has a quaintly humorous and dated air, like a vision of the 21st century from the 19th.


Operable windows are round portholes set into the glass on both sides of the house – both the smaller back here, and the much more expansive front, facing the coast.








hmmmmm….  don’t we have teeth for doing this?  I’d get one just for “conversation” at the dinner table.
