Welcome to Your New Home, a Tarpaulin Sphere Hanging From a Tree

It's kind of astonishing that it's 2015 and we're still living in houses and apartments, the same types of domiciles occupied by our grandparents and possibly even by people before our grandparents. At this point, it's still a toss up as to what futuristic living arrangement will take over, but these aluminum spheres covered in tarp seem like a pretty good bet. The "Cocoon Trees," as they are known, are light, at 60 kilos each (seems futuristic), can be hung from pretty much any tree (seems less futuristic, but let's just go with it), and basically just look like something from a science fiction movie.
