Tony Stark, the genius multimillionaire industrialist in the movie Iron Man has an over the top modern house perched on a cliff side overlooking the ocean! The house is entirely a CG creation and there is not a real house, but they did build limited portions of the interior for scenes in the movie. Usually I don't go for this kind of design which I would call Rich guy modern, but this house was so over the top I just had to love it. Particularly the automation systems which practically made the house itself a sentient being! Not to mention that somewhere buried in the house was a fast prototyping manufacturing machine. Design a robot super suit, hit print, its there in the morning. So, why does our friend Tony Stark have such a modern house? Why not a nice Georgian mansion like the Beverly Hillbillies? Rich guys like those, don't they? Here's why - because its cool. Simple as that. Now maybe America's home builders might like to sell some houses to people that might like a cool house someday. What do you think? You think they might get by making some cool product along with the rest of their boring product. No, I think we'll just make nothing but boring product..
