Despite looking like something straight out of Star Wars – Icosa Village’s collection of “Pod” prefab shelters are actually very down-to-earth. The pods are practical, affordable, and easy-to-build, with the pieces snapping together like Erector Sets. Starting around $2000, the Bucky-inspired dymaxion shelters are super cheap, and are designed to be used for a variety of recreational, promotional, and humanitarian uses.

Icosapods has a Tsunami Relief Program, providing Icosapods at low cost to help in the South-Asian tsunami reconstruction effort.
