    The neighbors of underneath apartment thanks the designer for the rumor of an entire wall that moves around their head making them not sleeping or causing a very big headache.

    I know this really sounds stereotypical, but the Japanese really do come up with some of the greatest ideas and time and time again they have popped up on this site.
