One day, Second Skin from Nick Dephoff may become a standard part of all emergency kits. Dephoff has created a portable shelter that folds up to the size of a sleeping bag and which serves a variety of functions. For starters, Second Skin can provide emergency shelter as a sleeping bag-tent combination. The shelter can protect you from falling debris and is also resistant to water.

Should you be safe from the rain and want to stretch out a bit, Second Skin can be unfolded to provide more space; it can also function as a stretcher. Second Skin from Nick Dephoff can't stop a cataclysm from happening, but it can make you more prepared to deal with what comes next. No word on whether Second Skin is just a concept or if there are plans to bring it to production.
