Bunkie Is A Space-Efficient Pre-Fab Cabin


Building a cabin on the property you bought by the lake sounds like a wonderful plan.  Until you actually get in the process of constructing one and realize for the umpteenth time that's you're nowhere near a capable carpenter.  Yeah, might as well just go pre-fab to save yourself the hassle.  If you're looking for something simple but functional and attractive, the Bunkie should figure high in your list of choices.

A collaborative product from 608 Design and BLDG Workshop, it's a small pre-fab cabin made up of just a single room.  Dimensions look about the size of a smaller shipping container (like the one used in the Sauna Box), except with a heck of a lot more class and style.

The Bunkie features a frame done up to resemble the traditional silhouette of a house, complete with a chimney on one side.  Construction is plywood and reclaimed barn boards for the frame, with glass walls for the front and the rear.  Since it just has a single open layout, the cabin is equipped with furniture items that fold into the wall, including a dining table that hides over the fireplace, folding chairs hung next to it, and a pair of queen-size murphy beds on the opposite side.  Shelf racks cover the remaining open areas of the wall.  Granted, you'll probably want a couch and a coffee table somewhere in there, too, but you can probably make that your personal carpentry project, instead.

No word yet on exact pricing and availability for the Bunkie, but you can sign up to the mailing list to get timely information.

The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
