I am not at all certain what the benefits are of having a cylindrical house, but I suppose that's why they call it "experimental." The University of Karlsruhe's Institute of Industrial Design and Construction Output collaborated with the same school's Institute of Supporting Structure (clearly something has been lost in translation here) on the Roll It, a modular experimental housing prototype that can, yes, roll.
Obviously there are a lot of problems to be overcome here: I'd be worried I'd crush my dogs or any bystanders outside the house if I decided to move it, and if I lived in a village of these things populated by my friends, we'd never get tired of removing somebody's blocks at 2am and rolling their house down a hill.
Still, cool concept, and it'd probably make a great space station interior.
