Basic House: Now you can carry your house in your pocket


This crazy looking gold stuff isn't a Christmas decoration or a really tacky accessory for your home, but it's a pocket sized portable shelter. Weird, huh?

The Basic House is made from a clever metalized polyester material, which can be folded down into a tiny package or unfolded and inflated by the owner's own body heat to create a temporary shelter.

It may seem like a crazy concept for now, but we imagine it'd be useful during emergencies or in extreme weather conditions, as it uses body heat to keep those inside the right temperature.
