This Floating House Produces Its Own Water, Electricity, and Heat

This house that a team of German scientists are developing for the Lusatian Lake District, the largest artificial lake district in Europe, is a triple threat: 1) It's entirely self-sufficient, generating its own electricity (via solar panels), heat (via a a salt hydrate fireplace and a zeolith thermal storage unit), and clean water (via something else that probably also has a really complicated-sounding name). 2) It floats. 3) It looks like a super villain's summer cottage and/or a video game checkpoint.
