My girlfriend just sent me this, it's pretty cool. I don't know the details--what are the materials? what is the cost?

Even if it's costly economically and ecologically, if they are mass-produced then they may become an agency surplus item, I suppose.

Or maybe it can be reverse-engineered.

The solar siphoning pump system is the main thing that looks new about this--I've never seen that. I think that would be useful for my pond situation for fish pond--but of course there's the lack of dissolved water issue...

thoughts?

It looks interesting. Based on the photos available it seems like more of a concept. It reminds me of intershelter domes which are also a portable, functional dwelling, made of mystery composite material. Pretty useful for a lot of applications. I read somewhere that the intershelter is 19,000 for the bigger unit.
