Interesting urban demand-hire rideshare vehicle prototype. Has a folding rear end that tucks itself into the passenger space to reduce storage requirements when on standby. Also features modular in-wheel electric motors with integrated all wheel steering/suspension, to open up the cabin and go back to the "skateboard" concept roots of the Chevy Volt. Zero radius turns too.

A true bargain house - MIT News Office
The Pinwheel house prototype is apparently larger than the intended design, and changed the roof layout to use a translucent panel over the center courtyard to keep it weather protected and to convert the center into a general purpose room/space. Which makes the house design a little more interesting and functional in my opinion, but I can understand the original design intention of using a single standardized module, yielding 4 matched roofs and a center open hole.

Constant connection
Interesting research about cellphone movement path prediction to optimize network connection handoff and connection power control, using the mobile unit (in this case a cellphone with GPS) to advertise to the base station its location so that a base station/cell network that is multi tower location aware and proactively handoff signals to other towers. This would be good in travel corridors such as public transit and highways where people are moving a lot. This would go hand in hand with that recent hardware announcement of base station tower hardware that offloads baseband calculations to a central datacenter, turning the entire cell network into a managed distributed antenna array, which by design will be at least location aware of its towers for cooperative forced handoff for load leveling in multi tower visible LoS situations. Sniffing the location information of endpoint devices, which is currently government mandated, to enhance the overall network capabilities is a logical step.
