Window that extends into a balcony

Well, it’s 2016 and the dawn of the future is upon us. Our coffee now comes in pods, our vacuums are robotic, and our TVs are smarter than us. So it really should come as no surprise that this next inspired idea looks as though it’s appeared straight out of an episode of The Jetsons.

Behold the Bloomframe window by design company HofmanDujardin and manufacturer Kawneer​, an apartment window that morphs magically into a balcony at the touch of a button. If you fancy having your cup of coffee on the balcony with a bout of vertigo each morning, this is certainly the home addition for you.

While we’re not sure when to expect the release of this brilliant yet terrifying feature, it has been noted that Kawneer is currently working on the final engineering stages of the project. All will be revealed in good time, but for now we leave you with the important question; would you be brave enough to try it out?
