Tent Of The Future Provides Shelter To Refugees

, the tent of the future is a sturdy hut made from a weatherproof fabric attached to bendable, compressed plastic which can open to create vent holes and exits and seals. This strong, sturdy structure can fold up for easy storage and transportation,. It can also collect and heat rainwater using solar energy.
