Studio apartments can get pretty tiny, but MIT is working on a new arrangement that could make them feel a whole lot bigger. For several years now, its been iterating on a concept product called CityHome that could efficiently pack key pieces of an apartment into a single modular unit, allowing owners to pull out a bed or a table and then store it again when theyre through with it in order to free up space. This latest vision also tries to make the CityHome a bit more high-tech — and a bit more fun. MIT envisions CityHome being connected to the rest of the apartment too, so gestures could be used to control lighting or whether the window shades are raised.
