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.

Modern House

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 11 best Steven Spielberg movies, ranked
These timeless classics are by the master movie director himself
Steven Spielberg in the mouth of Jaws

There are certain people who are instantly tied to their profession when you hear their name. When you think about your favorite memories at the cinema, Steven Spielberg is as synonymous with success as Michael Jordan is with basketball. The visionary director of such classics as Jaws, Indiana Jones, and E.T., Spielberg is quite possibly the most popular and influential filmmaker since the dawn of contemporary American cinema.
Born in 1946, Spielberg was always fascinated by cinema and the magic it creates. From a very young age, he was creating short films and imagining grand set designs for his ideas. In 1969, he got his first real chance with a seven-year contract as a director, and he was the youngest director to be signed to a major Hollywood company. Due to his dedication and hard work, Spielberg rose to national acclaim just eight years later with the release of Jaws.
Being so popular and successful comes a long way, but it helps to have the assistance of so many other talents on your side. Spielberg has worked with many who made his film resume that much stronger, some of which include George Lucas, Richard Dreyfuss, Kathleen Kennedy, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, and most notably, composer John Williams.
Spielberg and Williams have worked together in 27 films over 40 years -- Spielberg stating that Williams has been "... {B}reathing life into every movie we have made." The two have always worked together to create movie magic for decades, sharing a vision and seeing it through to the sometimes bitter end. For Spielberg, one is not without the other, as Spielberg once said, "... if movies are like lightning, then the musical score for me is like thunder. It can shake things up for years." Due to this, I had to dedicate this to Williams as well.
So now, without further ado, let’s rank the top 10 Steven Spielberg movies and show you his directorial history.
