Rotating house tackles views, airflow and sunlight

In Australia one designer put his house on wheels that rotate around a circular track. This allows the whole residence to rotate. The framing of the house  rests on a spiderweb truss and the house uses GPS to track 365 days of the year the exact location of the sun to optimize daylighting. Service lines and utilities also turn with the house and the house moves two times every one hour. Plus it only costs a few dollars a year to run.
