(GizMag) MIT spin-out Ori is create a single unit that combines robotics, architecture and design that can transform a micro studio or a one bedroom apartment into a living space with multiple different rooms based on the changing activities of the occupant. Ori’s unit is able to move back and forth on wheels at the touch of a button, without the need for tracks on the floor. A single linear actuator is attached to an adjacent wall and this pulls the unit along.
Ori believes  modular robotic technology and intelligent systems can be employed could be useful in a variety of other environments where space may be at a premium, suggesting office, hospitality, retail, education and medical settings.
