The Bloomframe "balcony-on-demand" system has been talked about for several years now, but it was only last month that this concept finally transitioned into reality.
Well, it's a reality if you live in Holland, France, Spain, or Portugal. Apartment dwellers in those countries can now add a push button balcony to their windows. Of course, those windows would have to be big enough to accommodate something like this, but the designers claim that the size of the Bloomframe can be adjusted and the materials can be customized to match the facade of new or existing buildings. And if you were wondering about a weight limit, the above image seems to indicate it can handle even the fattest of asses. [Bloomframe via Core77]
