    Would love to see these sold in America
    It would change the homeless problem in American dramatically.

      I would have to disagree with you Annie.
      I think you would have complete gridlock on inner city roads and sidewalks and park paths if these were to ever make it beyond conceptualization and were given to homeless persons in the U.S.

      Wind will turn it over pretty easily, I think!

    The concept of this is fantastic. Origami furniture is more space saving than simply fold down or swing out furniture. My question would be durability. I would think carbonized bamboo (a type of carbon fiber) would be more durable long term. I’d like to see this considered and tried further.

    I love this design. I use my bike as my main form of transportation anyway, so this concept just thrills me. I’d LOVE one of these for myself, but I can see how the logistics of biking through traffic with one of them might be an issue.

    What a great concept! These would really be great for mild climates. With the right material, it might even be good for mildly cold areas. I can’t see anyone living in only one unit, though I suppose it could work. If there are two people, then one can be sleeping, living and kitchen and the other, maybe even smaller, unit supplying storage and bathroom. I don’t think a hard tub would be too practical, though. I’ve seen folding canvas tubs that would work great. I would like to see these go into production.
