Well, I wouldn't call it "movable", at least once erected... but it sure is cool!

Wonder if one can actually buy this somewhere...

The shelter that keeps on giving after a disaster.

Hmmm! How do I get rid of this, I know, I'll hire someone to tear it down.

Then I'll hire someone that will haul it away.

Oh! I need some land fill, I'll just use it there.

etc.,

Ingenious idea though - it would give new meaning to camping, but I'd bet it would be full-time in one place.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

If you can move a shipping container,or a trailer house, Im sure you could have one of these moved..but ya that "movable" is a fine line..lol
and this is the only link i can find to be able to buy one, and im not sure if they are for the public yet or not, but they have steel that is so strong it you cant shoot threw it, but yet it is bendble..so give it time, im sure they will come up with something new soon.

The UNHCR have put in an order for a million of these and have already sub contracted the metal workers to build a sign for over the gate.
I think of the websites say they weigh around 500 pounds before you erect it.

I watched the video, then watched one of the links that popped up at the end. Concrete Cloth Military Applications - YouTube. The military applications are impressive.
