    Self Assembling Emergency Housing

    For natural disaster victims, temporary housing is a dire concern. Enter Self Assembling Emergency Housing, a project to create full-scale, self-assembling semi-permanent living spaces for natural disaster victims. The project includes designs and prototypes for a pre-fabricated, pre-assembled, collapsing and expanding, solid panel, modular structure that can be easily transported in shipping containers— and quickly deployed by either an untrained person or a self-driven robot.
