• Solar powered high-tech shelter for the homeless

    Smart green living is not only limited to people who can afford to shell out enough money to support such a lifestyle. Winfried Baumann has conceptualized a green, high-tech, shelter for the homeless and nomads. Fitted with solar panels, mobile satellite system and laptop, such a container is an idle den for bankrupt geeks. Boasting of comforts like retractable padded bed, first aid kit, mirror, whistle, multi-tool, flashlight and a plastic hood with viewing window, this nomadic earth-friendly techie shelter is portable too. Crafted out of aluminum, it weighs 110kg only. I don’t mind trading my small den for such a fundamental yet self-sufficient, eco-friendly shelter.
