AirDrop House Emergency Shelter for Flood-Afflicted Areas
The Airdrop House is a complete housing kit made from sponge-like material that starts at 1 meter in diameter. Capable of being carried by a standard military aircraft, the spheres are dropped from the air into the water and weighted so they land right-side up. The spheres are light enough to move around, and as they travel they soak up and filter the polluted flood waters.
Once the houses are set, they begin to take root into the ground and can expand up to 7 meters in diameter – as they dry the spongy material hardens. Seeds are embedded in the foam polymer that begin to bud once they hit the silt rich flood waters, eventually providing shade for the home and a source of food production.
