Tata Creates $720 House With 1 Week Build Time

The world’s cheapest car is currently manufactured by the Tata Group, and costs about $2,000. While we were amazed when we heard that a brand new car was $2,000, you’ll be even more surprised when you hear this.

Tata has just created a flatpack wooden house that’s built in one week and costs a total of $720. Think of it as a very large IKEA project. Now, before you call BS on this story, do note that the house is only ‘good’ for 20 years.

$35 Waterproof Digital Camera, Amazing Deal

Have you ever wanted to go white water rafting without destroying your state-of-the-art digital camera, or wrecking your brand new Android smartphone?

The company has launched a digital camera, priced at just $35, that will take pictures at a 1.3MP resolution (I had a 1.3MP digital camera in 2002).

The LCD display isn’t anything too special, as it measures only 1.4″ diagonal. The camera can take photos of up to 100 feet underwater. While it won’t take the sharpest photos (by far), it certainly is better than nothing, especially when you’re set to go snorkeling but don’t have any water-proof cameras with you.
