This building builds itself

What if you need a decent-sized building someplace in 10 minutes? Call Ten Fold Engineering, a UK-based company (

Each structure is 689 square feet of space. It can be transported to any site (no foundation needed) by truck.

All you need to set it up is a battery-powered, hand-held drill.

The building, you see, unfurls itself using a low-tech, counter-balanced folding assembly.

The units can be stack on each other or on sloped or uneven ground.

Use them for clinics, beach houses, offices, shops, anything.

Time to move on? They furl back together.

The company even combined some to make a 40-bedroom hotel for a festival.

What do these cost? The company's website promises more info on cost this month.

Oh--and you can see some cool depictions of the buildings unfolding.
