Exploring the new implications of privacy and the home in this technologically advanced day and age, the RAM house acts as an airplane mode-like curtain that can be pulled on and off. It is designed with radar-absorbent shields that block radio signals from entering the house and filter between cell phone, Wi-Fi and alternate radio signals.

'Space Caviar' is a Genoa-based design research team that is exploring how much people's own homes know about them via smartphones, television devices and computer networks. This home acts as a commentary on the fact that in today's world, people's very houses contain important information like credit card and social security numbers to personal preferences like TV shows and websites.

In addition to securing greater privacy, this airplane mode-activating home could also bring about a renewed focus on the family and personal relationships that have taken a toll with the age of ever increasing technology.
