Researchers at Kassel University are exploring a new type of building material that involves inflating a flexible skin and then, filling embedded cavities with concrete. Voila - inflatable concrete! A pop-up building! Blow it up. Squirt some stuff inside. Move in the furniture.
Implications - Such a development in architecture can greatly impact the ways in which buildings, and even whole cities, are constructed in the future. The ability to simply "blow up" a building may change both housing and community design, as well as the products that go within. And, if buildings can be inflated, there's no telling what other future products can be blown up as well.
