In most cities, the rising price of real estate far outstrips residents’ incomes, forcing them into smaller and smaller living and working spaces. We have seen numerous examples of reconfigurable furniture — such as a line of modular furniture and this convertible desk — that enable users to maximize their limited room. Now, taking this trend to the next level, New York-based robotics company Asmbld has created Project DOM Indoors: a team of tiny robots that live beneath the floor, which rearrange small modules into entire reconfigurable rooms in minutes.
