Dubai to build first "moving" skyscraper

According to the BBC, Dubai will soon feature a revolutionary new type of building with a constantly shifting shape. The Dynamic Tower will have revolving floors and 80 stories, with each apartment in the building capable of spinning an entire 360 degrees through a voice command. Not only will the building be a shape-shifter, but wind turbines positioned between storeys will make it energy self-sufficient and even produce extra power to put back into the grid. The building is slated to be finished by 2010 for an estimated cost of $700 million, and if you plan on buying one of the apartments you’ll have to spend at $3.7 million to $36 million.
