    Bosnian man builds spinning house so his wife has diversified view
     A self-taught innovator in Bosnia has built a rotating house, allowing his wife to watch a rising sun in one moment and passers-by in the next – all without leaving the room.
    "I've got tired of her complaints and frequent refurbishing of our family house and I said: I'll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish," Vojin Kusic, 72, told Reuters. The house spins around a 23-foot axis designed Kusic and is rotated by electric motors and wheels from a military transporter.
    "The house can make a full circle for 24 hours when it's at the slowest speed, while at the fastest spinning it can make a full circle in 22 seconds," Kusic said.
    Kusic says the project took about six years to finish. He says he was inspired by Serbian-American inventors Nikola Tesla and Mihajlo Pupin, and that coming from a poor family without the possibility of a good education had forced him to look for ways to make things by himself.
    "This is not an innovation, it only requires will and knowledge, and I had enough time and knowledge," he said, adding that he had built the house completely by himself.
