The ‘Skysphere‘ created by New Zealand native Jono Williams – an elevated cylindrical apartment with 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape, accessed by an internal ladder, powered by photovoltaic cells with internal systems  managed via smartphone. To wit:

…systems include a fingerprint entry motorized door; refrigerated, in-couch beer dispenser; solar powered management system; miracast projector; wireless sound system; and computer generated voice dialogs. williams has also built a custom queen size bed, added dimmable, colored mood LED lighting, high speed internet, a central ladder for entry and a rooftop starview platform.

Plumbing, a hydraulic lift and ‘modesty glass’ are planned for version two. For now, you pee among the nearby trees.
