Consexto is a Portuguese architecture firm that offers THX-certified home theater products for both the indoors and outdoors as well as several other nifty gadgets for home automation. In May 2012 the company was featured on the Forbes website in an article called "Amazing High-Tech Homes."

The piece featured a shape-shifting apartment in Matosinhos, Portugal. The limitations of its 474-square-foot dimensions are overcome via moving walls, which allow it to accommodate guests or just move things around for a change of scenery, all at the touch of a button.
