#2.7 At Nam Phu, Vientiane, Muong Lao, Tim Vistarini, March 8, 2015

 

Seasoned Explorer Tim Vistarini has brought the Moonhouse #2.7 on an expedition to Vientiane. Nam Phou, is a popular hang out in Vientiane and were it not for the poor lighting conditions in the tropical night in Vientiane we are sure we would have seen the house at the concert that was undoubtedly held the same night as the picture above was taken.

Thank you for sharing this excellent expedition Tim. We hope you had many laughs in Vientiane and fair winds for your coming expeditions!

The house in Tokyo cherry blossom

#2.16 Tokyo, Shinjuku Gyoen Tina Holmqvist, April 24, 2015

#2.16 Tokyo, Shinjuku Gyoen, Tina Holmstedt, April 24, 2015

 

Tina Holmqvist has been on a very exciting expedition to Tokyo where she and Moonhouse #2.16 have been exploring the legendary cherry blossom in the Shinjuku Gyoen garden. As we all can see the house blends well with the cherry blossom. One would wish that the house could bring a cherry tree to the Moon where the blossoms would be off-set wonderfully agains the black sky and crisp star field. This expedition is poetic to the level that we have to rename Moonhouse #2.16 to Cherry Blossom.

We thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures from your exciting expedition Tina. We wish you fair winds for your coming expeditions.

The Moonhouse is current. It is so current that it made an expedition to the EU elections in Sweden just to encourage democratic participation, brought there by an anonymous explorer.

Congratulations anonymous on your successful expedition and fair winds for your coming adventures.

Field tests with #X.2

In the quest for reaching ever more extreme environments and setting out on ever more delicate expeditions there is an ongoing development of ever more capable Moonhouse models. The Moonhouse #X-series are the prototypes of tomorrow’s Moonhouse models. Before the X-series the prototype models were part of the nominal series. Examples are the plastic #2.18 and the negative #1.5. The #X.1 is the first of the moonhouses made from clay. The #X.1 is of similar size as the #3-series and has negative bouyancy in water, meaning that it will sink to the bottom. The #X.2 is similar to #X.1 as it is made from the same material but where the X.1 is comparable in size to the #3-series, the #X.2 is comparable in size to the #2-series. The #X.2 also features a a base magnet making it attachable to magnetic surfaces.

Any prototype has to be tested and Moonhouse #X.2 is no exception. On May 12 endavoured on its first expedition, with Emil Vinterhav to Konradsberg. See the results below.

#2.42 The Answer
20140522 Cologne, Germany, Emil Vinterhav

On May 22, 2015 Moonhouse #2.42 made landfall near the dome och Cologne lending some of its colour to the aged beauty of the grey building dating back to the middle ages. Or actually, the foundations for the dome were laid in 1248 and the building was completed in 1860. Construction spanning over more than 600 years warrants respect.

Congratualations on your successful expedition Emil, we wish you fair winds for your coming expeditions.

The Expedition has reached the shores of the Great Lakes as Katharina Ayres brought Moonhouse #2.39 to Chicago. Chicago is known as ”The Windy City” but we can let you in on a secret; No matter how hard you huff, no matter how hard you puff, you will not blow this house down.

Congratualtions to the successful expedition Katharina. We wish you fair winds for your coming adventures!
