Basic House: Pocket Sized Portable House

Goodfellas is too damn expensive if you ask me, expensive to the point where, I'd rather risk a little ding tonight, than pay those guys. "I know, a lot of you will tell me you can't put a price on human life, but I just did." This is an invettive way of curbing drunk driving, and other problems.  I have a friend who carries a toothbrush in his jeans when we go out, just in case he wakes up at someones house, it's logic I don't quite understand, cause morning breath is natures way of ending a one night stand, don't attach strings to it by being all minty fresh and shit. I've justy been sidetracked. here's the deal. Imagine you had one of these houses in your pocket at the club, you and intended victim both get a little too sauced up, and none of you want to take it back to your place, whip this house and presto, accomodation for the night sorted, just make sure you got a condom in the other pocket. How awesome would it be to see the streets of Greenside, Parkhurst, Rosebank and Sandton, lined with the rocking motion of this gold space foil houses?!

vid after the jump...

Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It's basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.
"The Basic House is a temporary housing solution so portable it can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior."
