‘Skysphere’ will be your dream living space, can be completely controlled with Android app

We all like having our own little space, where we can simply be ourselves and do whatever. This is usually just a little room somewhere in the house, but there’s some people who will not conform with having such an average man cave. Plastic engineer and graphic designer Jono Williams went above and beyond, building the best lounging room I have ever seen.

He calls it the ‘Skysphere’, a name that is very descriptive of the floating room’s aesthetics. Erected in a hill surrounded by trees, the Skysphere looks like something coming out of a science fiction film. And it’s not only its look that is innovative, this living space was designed in a very high-tech fashion.

For starters, the tower runs on solar energy alone. Its panels were discretely installed on top, and can power the space for 2 days, making it a perfect weekend getaway.

Lighting and security systems were based on an Android device connected to an IOIO development board. This allows him to control everything from his phone, as well as voice commands.

Jono confesses his favorite part of the Skysphere is the unique built-in couch cooler, though. Refreshments are always at arm’s length and the fridge will even send a notification when it’s running low.

That pretty much sums up Jono Williams’ man cave. I must say this thing is legit! We know he spent about 3 years building it – now I am wondering how much it costed him. I would love to get myself something similar! Wouldn’t you?
