Microcompact House: Smaller than Paris Hilton's Jail Cell

We have covered the Microcompact House before; it is the ingenious cube that Justin described so: They are an interesting, if extreme, exercise in making efficient use of indoor space. The tiny cube provides a double bed on an upper level and working table and dining space for four or five people on a lower level."

The BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani spent a night in one and describes the experience in the video above. He concludes: "It's a very tranquil place but at the same time it's a bit of an adventure - there's always something to slide out or under, pull down, tuck away, generally fiddle with, if only out of the need for space. To live here you have to be ordered: to do one thing, you have to finish another first and put it away. And that may be my and other compact-livers' downfall." ::BBC
