Innovative Sleeping Bags

United States-American students have developed a portable shelter for Homeless, at the crossroads between the sleeping bag and tent. An innovation that could diminish the number of deaths caused by the cold.

In France, since the beginning of the winter, at least six people have died because of the cold. For the homeless, emergency accommodation places are not always accessible and sleeping on the street is often a solution out of spite. In the future, an innovation could improve their daily lives.

Students of the Institute of innovation from the Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, have developed a portable shelter as part of a contest held this month here. The goal for both teams competing: new economically feasible solutions for helping the homeless. Their works are carried on temporary shelters that might ultimately be adopted by cities.

A material used for the covers of surviva

The team arrived in second place so imagined a refuge to wear on the shoulder, the ‘Satellite Shelter’ (shelter-satellite). This sleeping bag turns into tent through a kind of folding capsule. Composed of a material made from polyester affordable, used especially for the covers of survival, it is completely insulated, waterproof and ventilated. See Financedns.com for a new sleeping bag.

Moreover, wheels and straps facilitate its transport.”We wanted to ensure that it was light and durable, so that it is easy to move,” said one of the team members in avideo introducing the concept.

The winning team, on the other hand, has designed a structure closed and fixed, Billboard the day and accommodation overnight.  In the evening, the person in need can “unfold” the shelter through a system of identification, powered at the base of the streetlights.
