Our concept is based on cloud computing technology.
Cell zero (the correspondent of „client 0”) is a structure with an address or a position in cloud.
Thin cell (the correspondent of „thin client”) is a cell 0 with „hardware”. The „hardware” is ensembles forming walls, floors, bathrooms, stairs, green roof etc. In this new view a wall can be a cooling/heating wall, a storage wall, a multimedia wall, a kitchen wall or a hybrid wall. Why just in the future the things will be connected. The walls, bathroom can be connected to internet and energy suppliers as well. May be is time when the electric, heating cooling, electronic or IT device producers will make home „hardware”. The cover, the wall, must become a device.
A cloud house (the correspondent of the „fat client”) is an ensemble of thin and zero cells built on private or common properties.
A cloud will be formed as well by „places” like park, playground, school, community center, hobby gardening or farming zones. The houses will be stored in clusters and will respect an interior code and the city regulations.
In this concept a cloud house can be transformed (add/extract cells or hardware) or moved to another place in the cloud or other cloud. It will be possible to stay one or two years near a garden, then to add 2 or 3 cells for your children, move with your house near the school, sale or give 2 or 3 cells to become a cloud house to your first kid, move a part of your house near a farming zone, and sow on…. From time to time some of your cells will can migrate in other clouds.
It will be an exchange site were in real time you will know the offer and demand for all the positions in cloud clusters.
The price for a cloud house will be cheaper because the cells and the hardware can be replaced and updated. It will be a fluid living with a lot of possibilities, no delays between the people needs and the way of living.
