Australian developer David McKinney built the Product Hunt app in a very unusual workspace: a custom-fitted van.
As McKinney explained to our sibling site Business Insider, using the van as an office saves on rent and gives him much more mobility (and the ability to escape from a busy home with two young children):
The van office and working in different places is really about sort of preservation of flow. I get quite protective about that little window I have where I can actually make things and get creative so the office in the van is really like a tool I have to help me get there.
To ensure he has enough power for his laptop, McKinney travels with a second battery. Internet access is via a 4G hotspot.
