Meet the Romotow T8, a unique caravan designed by New Zealand architecture firm W2 that has an inner section capable of rotating 90-degrees.

The rotating caravan – which resembles a USB stick when extended – has hit the market at £187,000 (NZ$375,000).

Designed by New Zealand-based architecture firm W2, the travel trailer is a futuristic two-part design. One portion of the structure is immovable, while the other can rotate to a 90-degree position at the push of a button to create a covered patio area.

Thanks to the integrated automated hydraulic system, the swivel action can be completed in less than a minute.
