This environmentally friendly home spins to always allow sunshine inside to keep it warm in the winter but cool in the summer.

Rolf Disch, designed the house that collects solar energy [1] by following the sun all day. The entire house rotates on a central axle. Triple-glazed glass is used on one side of the house to maintain warm temperatures and uses super-insulation to do the opposite for the hot summer months.

Not only is the indoor air regulated to comfortable temperatures but there are solar vacuum tubes that will heat the water using the sun. Extraordinarily, the home makes more energy than it uses. Imagine that feat.
