Watch: The Plans For The First Rotating Skyscraper in Dubai By 2020 Look Seriously Intriguing

... Is the future near?

Dubai is a city known for its constant strive and success to innovation. From the first Hyperloop, the tallest skyscraper and the largest mall in the world, it would come to no surprise that plans for the first ever rotating tower would be thought of being placed here. 

What is it?

David Fisher, an Israeli-Italian architect, discussed on Your Discovery Science of his proposal in 2008 for the first tower in the world that is rotatable to 360 degrees. Giving its residents the ability to manually adjust the speed or motion of the apartment to their preference, according to Mashable. 

Last year, we discussed a similar video of the same project. Although there is still no valid proof that the construction will take place, some are still fascinated with the videos and overall concept of the tower. 

Reports have stated that the project has since then been moved to London.

"The Dynamic Tower", if so, promised its residents though that paying for electricity would not be necessary as the 80- story tower would also include a power station from wind turbines.

With the futuristic style and the customisability of window views, each apartment reported to have cost around $30 million
