Comments on EDV-01 Instant Self-Sufficient House
'There was nowhere on the planet where science and technology could not provide one with a comfortable home...' (Read the complete story)

"But can you electrify the outside of it to keep the zombies out?"

"Excellent question; I know just the guy to ask - Captain Nemo!
'"M. Aronnax," quietly answered Captain Nemo, "they will not enter the hatches of the Nautilus in that way, even if they were open."'
'... the first native who placed his hand on the stair-rail, struck from behind by some invisible force, I know not what, fled, uttering the most fearful cries and making the wildest contortions.'
It was no rail; but a metallic cable charged with electricity from the deck communicating with the platform. Whoever touched it felt a powerful shock-- and this shock would have been mortal if Captain Nemo had discharged into the conductor the whole force of the current. It might truly be said that between his assailants and himself he had stretched a network of electricity which none could pass with impunity.
(See 'electrify the rail' a classic plot device."

"They're okay for immediate temp housing, I guess. Bill, didn't you cover some similiar tech for temp housing once before? "

"Ah, I found it. It's your "instant housing" article. I was even the first commenter in that one."

"Actually, I'm fascinated by the idea that I could just airlift my little off-the-grid condo anywhere I liked. Here are links to my other stories on similar topics:

  - Solar-Hydrogen House Is Energy Independent
  - Instant Housing
  - Put MercuryHouseOne Anywhere
