In Serbia, when he is not designing pendulum-powered electric brains, inventor Veljko Milković is building earth sheltered self-heating eco-houses.

Instead of a traditional roof, ecological house has a layer of soil, protecting the house from low winter and high summer temperatures. In addition, walls are protected from erosion. Ecological house does not require deep foundation, large area for heating material, heating installations etc.
