This tiny solar house is called the Fab Lab House Project designed by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC).

It was chosen to be one of the participants of the Solar Decathlon Europe competition in Madrid, Spain.

It has a unique design and utilizes solar power as you see on the roof.

The house uses the resources of the environment (water, sun, and wind) to adapt.

The house has a control panel which gives you information as to how much power the lights, oven, and washing machine are consuming.

It also tells you how much power is being produced by solar panels.

The control system provides real-time monitoring of the technology within the house as well as the environment.

It keeps historical information along with the capability of sharing this information through the Internet. Could be helpful if you’re away, etc.
