Continuing our review of 2011, we take a look at the most popular stories from May. In first place was the Finger-nose Stylus by Dominic Wilcox, which straps over the nose and enables the user to securely operate a touch-screen device with one hand.
In second place is an exhibition of work by London architect Zaha Hadid inside her Mobile Art Pavilion outside the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris.
A house on a hilltop in Sweden by John Robert Nilsson came in third, with readers claiming it would be an ideal setting for a Bond film.
A timber house in Japan with wide openings in the wall, roof and floorplate was the fourth most-viewed story of the month.
Completing our list for the month is a large birds nest hotel in Sweden, supported by existing trees and with a retractable staircase.
