I find this idea intriguing. I haven't seen another company's products working quite like this.

There is a whole industry that repurposes used container ship containers for this purpose. I've seen pictures of some houses pieced together from 3-4 containers that you'd never guess.

Not sure if there's any cost savings involved.

It's the mobility that's different with this lot. The houses unfold themselves, and can fold themselves back up again to go back on the truck to go somewhere else. So you are looking at good utility for emergency shelters in disaster areas, or temporary offices at construction sites, or similar situations.

Yeah, cool idea. FEMA should buy a couple thousand of them.
