The Emergency Shelter of the Future Is Probably Nicer Than Your Apartment


Wired has an interesting piece about The Exo, "the first emergency shelter to embrace technology and design as fundamental features." Designer Michael McDaniel was inspired in the days after Hurricane Katrina to come up with the shape of the shelter, which is modeled after a stackable paper cup, making it easier than ever to transport. Also, they, according to Wired, "look like something you'd see in Star Wars [and] are like mini hotel rooms."
