Low Tech Mechanics

Really like this because of the low tech mechanics….

From cool Hunting:

“A hinge without a revolution joint, the QuaDror is extremely strong and energy efficient, but the real beauty about QuaDror is its flexibility. The robust nature of the design allows it to hold up to 86 QuaDrors on top of each other. When stacked the unit can serve as a sound barrier or temporary wall; when collapsed, the QuaDror is completely flat. Dror explained that while you can fit 1,750 pieces in one shipping container, that fact isn’t even relevant because “there is no reason why you can’t just produce them locally”—a brilliant aspect when finding immediate solutions for disaster relief, which is another viable option for the form’s purpose.”
