This missile silo was originally intended to hold a four-megaton thermonuclear warhead, but in a few months the indestructible concrete structure in north of Salina, Kan., will turned into several luxury high-tech condos.

Logic Integration of Lone Tree, Colo., was recently commissioned by the developer of the project, Larry Hall, to install a variety of electronic systems into each residence, as well as outfit a shared recreation area with a state-of-the-art home theater. According to Logic Integration president Shawn Hansson, each condo will be equipped with a whole-house A/V system, flat-panel TVs, and an intercom system. One of the most interesting high-tech touches, he says, will be the incorporation of LCD screens that function as “windows.” Each client can pick what kind of landscape they’d like each window to display, such as a beach or a forest. It’s a technology recommended by the psychologist that was hired by Hall for the project. See More Here.
