    I do not see any practical use for this, other then it being A Demo for a Design Class.

    College Dorm? - Supplies bed and Armoure.
    Hotel? - It`s a Hotel.
    New home? - You did had a bed before.
    Camping? - Either you brought along a motor home, or this box.

    This box will not follow you threw the woods easily. or even over grassy knolls.

    It is not transported easily, And even there, you`re not going to need a dresser hen you go camping.

    Huh.
    Cool, I guess.
    Could`ve used background music with a bit more... you know... sound. :-)

    "Background music: John Cale`s 4.33".

    *sniffs* I smell... irony.

    Oh, and good concept, and it may have some practical uses, but I`m in no hurry to replace my double bed and stuff with a portable bed, thank you.

    Hmm, you mean John Cage. 4`33" is an actual score of silence for all those who didn`t know.

    Yeah. Ikea-type stuff is much more interesting when you are affluent enough not to need it.

    I hate particle board. It`s basically garbage and it contains all sorts of nasty chemicals. I truly love real wood furnishings, and I just feel better around it, even though there are so many people now (I guess) that it`s not available for everyone. (Dad was an antique restorer.)

    I did get to walk around in an entire HOUSE in a box last month, and it operated more or less like what was in this clip. Every year the local mall sponsors an exhibition by the espresso people Illy, and this time it was an entire cheapskate home packed into a semi trailer. It`s much more impressive in theory than in practice. I think I`d prefer to live in a bamboo hut if given the choice.

    yeah some of them things look pretty weedy, like when he screws the stool together, although he did sit on it? lol good concept, limited functionality. Also, wtf was that tall thing they stacked together on the right? Is it meant to be a bookcase? lol looks like it could be knocked over if somebody slams the door!

    After unloading the room in a box, the two boys started to butt f uck each other on the small little cot. Surprisingly, the little Swedish bed held their weight...all night long.

    Gotta love Cage`s music and his philosophy of what is music.
    One of my friends actually decided to "play" 4min33sec for his saxophone recital. In three movements.

    ^ lol at JazzyPiano. I would`ve liked to have seen that. I also want to see the sheet music for it (let me see... rest.rest.rest.rest.rest.rest....) I heart experimental and artsy music.

    That would be interesting to own. I mean, it looks cheap, but imagine how easy it`d be to move!

    John Cage was a genius. Sorry Pianoman. Can`t go with you on this one, but let`s not get into it.

    Hmmm . . . interesting, but I`m sure I could fill a house with Salvation Army stuff for the price of this box, then have a bonfire (or give it back) when I want to move. Cheap!

    Very cool, but the title is misleading. I thought this would be like a fold-up room that could fit in a
    box. Perhaps it should be called "Room FURNITURE in a box." Anyway, still very cool.
