These self-deploying buildings can pop-up in eight minutes, painting a future in which structures can build themselves.

The self-deploying structures were designed by UK-based company 'Ten Folds Engineering' and unfold at the touch of a button. This machine offers a glimpse into the future of construction, as these buildings can be used as pop-up medical spaces, temporary event venues, or even mobile grocers or vendor huts. The devices simply "fold up the solid parts of a building to make it move easily," creating a mechanical building that slowly unfolds before the consumer's eyes in under ten minutes.

This self-constructing building eliminates the need for labor and machinery, offering consumers a mobile and ready-made structure that's versatile enough to fulfill any need.
