Cyberhouse Is the Post-Apocalyptic Crash Pad for Your Tesla Cybertruck

It’s been almost two months since Elon Musk revealed Tesla’s all-new, “bulletproof” Cybertruck. The radical design continues to polarize automotive enthusiasts. Now, one Russian company is poised to give the community even more to talk about with a Blade Runner-esque residence purpose-built to house the Cybertruck.

Cyberhouse and Cybertruck for the zombie Apocalypse

The “cyber” moniker feels as dated as an AOL dial-up internet connection. Nevertheless, like Elon Musk, Russian design firm Modern House is looking to resurrect it with the aptly named Cyberhouse. The one-of-a-kind design is a 3,230-square-foot bunker built to survive the zombie apocalypse. The hard angular exterior pulls inspiration from (one might argue “blatantly rips off”) the Cybertruck’s radical lines. A concrete and steel shell protects the self-sustained compound against nuclear war, zombies, and other unsavories with armored windows, metallic blinds, military-grade airlock doors, and even a drawbridge. Modern House promises that these features protect against so-called “Z-Day” environmental disasters, including radiation, and mechanical and electromagnetic shocks.

Details on the official Modern House website are thin. The marketing brochure for Cyberhouse feels like part of a script from the Resident Evil franchise: “A zombie virus has finally broken out at a top-secret biolab. Decades of warnings from pop culture were not enough. Mindless but determined hordes of undead roam the countryside, devouring town after unsuspecting town.” The company’s Chief Architect, Alex Wizhevsky, confirmed the final design was ripped straight from Tesla’s Cybertruck. “When I saw the presentation of Elon Musk’s Cybertruck, I had a question: ‘what would the owner of such a car be like’, because this car is a super protected armored car,” he told Dezeen.

Inside, a central atrium anchors the two-story structure. The living quarters — including the bedrooms, bathrooms, and lounge areas — would wrap the space with a rooftop deck above. A subterranean garage provides protected storage for a Cybertruck, machetes, canned Spam, and other survivalist gear, all accessible via an elevator. Cyberhouse is designed to sleep seven survivors comfortably, although it’ll fit 10 in a pinch.

Cyberhouse was first billed as a concept. Evidently, there was more demand than the company anticipated, and the real-world design is now available with a starting price of $865,000. If a prepper-chic doomsday bunker isn’t quite cozy enough, Modern House promises an all-new “Santa cottage for atomic wintering” sometime in 2020.

If you’re looking to equip your new bunker with a backup bug-out ride, the custom, million-dollar Ramsmobile SUV is still available. Hookah optional.

The 16 best war movies of all time, ranked
From Inglourious Basterds to The Thin Red Line, there are the best war movies that you can stream now.
Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, and other actors playing as American soldiers riding a boat in "Saving Private Ryan."

War movies are among the most morally sticky films produced in Hollywood. While the best war movies go out of their way to reveal the violence and bloodshed that comes with any armed conflict, many can't help but valorize the men and women who fight in these wars. As a result, many movies about war end up glorifying war even if the creative voices behind the project didn't intend them to. In the best war movies, though, moral questions are never easily answered. Well, unless your war movie is a Star Wars movie. 
If you want black-and-white morality, this list of the best action movies on Netflix may better fit the bill. 

War movies, on the other hand, often speak to the way that violence breaks men, even if they believe in their cause. These war movies will shake you to your core, and remind you that humanity is capable of being messy and violent just as frequently as it is brave and valorous.

There's a reason action movies are so popular. The best action movies can thrill you with a dazzling combination of car chases, fight scenes, and special effects. The best action movies can also, and this is important, be wonderfully dumb. Indeed, the plot of an action movie is typically fairly unimportant, as long as the set pieces that get you from sequence to sequence are compelling enough. If you're looking for some great action, you don't need to look much further than these, which are some of the best action movies on Amazon Prime. Whether your goal is to find something gritty and realistic or something completely silly but joyous nonetheless, Prime has plenty of great movies to choose from.

The 11 best Sean Connery movies of all time
These films starring the Scottish actor rise above the rest
best sean connery movies ranked seanconnery1

Connery leans on the classic Bond Aston Martin on the set of Goldfinger.
If you're too young to remember the hype around Sean Connery, ask your parents or grandparents what it was like to be a movie fan during his era of stardom. There wasn't a person on the planet who didn't immediately think of Connery when listing the actors with the biggest screen presence. But what is it that makes this man so incredibly iconic? Could it be because he never changes his voice for movies because “the emotions should be the same, internationally”? Perhaps it’s because of his unique Scottish accent that any novice impersonator is sure to try and mimic. All we know for sure is: Connery’s James Bond is -- for an overwhelming majority -- the best and most memorable of all 007 iterations in history.
Though his big on-screen break was as the devilishly handsome and smooth secret agent, real fans know that Sean Connery was much more than that. Besides being a respectful, earnest, and successful actor, Connery spent his first 25 years -- starting at the age of 7 -- working manual labor jobs and eventually joining the Royal Navy at 16. Truly a man of many hidden talents, he also took dance lessons for 11 years, was offered a soccer contract with Manchester United, and also spent time working as a nude model for art students after being honorably discharged from the military.
There are so many reasons to love the late, great Sir Sean Connery, but we are here to praise him for his most memorable on-screen performances. Yes, James Bond will, of course, be mentioned, but we also bring out the later films in his career that made him so much himself. So mix yourself a vodka martini “shaken, not stirred” and help us celebrate the shining star that was Sean Connery.
