Wake up to Sunrise, Go to Bed by Sunset

Literally! These apartments actually can rotate individually so you can wake up by the light of sunrise & go to bed by the fading Sunset!

SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - Feel like you need to turn your life around? Then a new apartment building in the Brazilian city of Curitiba could be for you.
Each floor in the 11-story building can revolve independently 360 degrees to the left or to the right.
"This is the only building in the world in which each apartment can spin individually," said Joao Carlos Peters, marketing director at the Moro construction company.
The project took 10 years to complete and the suites, which each occupy an entire floor of the circular building, went on sale on Thursday for $300,000.
Spinning in the high-tech building is activated by voice commands. It takes an hour for each 3,000-square-foot (300-square-meter) apartment to complete one rotation.
