From young smart people come new smart ideas. Sure the concept of solar powered homes is not new but the students at Virginia Tech entered the “Lumenhaus” in the U.S Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition that not only achieves it goal of self sustaining power provided by the good old sun, but this cool living quarter of 800 sq. ft. changes according to the seasons, weather, and light. All of the shell parts including window and roof panels articulate to allow sunlight in and to capture more available light at all times of the day. See the Lumenhaus project that is underway now and get more information for your next solar powered or energy saving home here. Via Design Milk
