But the future is promising because a collective of New York based artists will launch in May 2009 a floating habitat, 100% eco, to support a fully sustainable community, this eco-habitat is called Waterpod.

This habitat(Waterpod) is built from a combination of recycled fabric, metal, wood, plastic and other many materials, being a triple-domed island. The construction is build for many other activities like: eco-initiatives, alternative energy, vertical agriculture and artistic activity. The food grown will be realized with purified water from the Hudson River.

Waterpod will powered by solar and wind energy.  I think that this type of habitat will be the future and i guess that in 100 years we will live in such houses if the global warming will progress.
