Snail Shell System

Here's a plan. Let's abandon heat, lighting and indoor plumbing in favour of temporary communities of plastic snail shells (paddle included).

The SNAIL SHELL SYSTEM is a low cost system that enables persons to move around, change their whereabouts and live in various environments. One unit supplies space for one person. It is mobile both on land and water. One person can move it slowly, either by pushing it like a wheel, walking inside it or on top of it.

Even better.

It's opaque, so walking inside it to move it has to be very much fun.

The dog downs for the hatches are on the OUTSIDE. So, wait for dummy to get in, seal the hatch closed,and throw/roll him down the hill into the river. Lands ventilation hatch down? No problem. Evolution in action.

One could go on and on, and on, how stupid this is, even for the purpose intended.

Not to mention that walking inside it the "toilet" might just leak. I really think that the people who are interested in this should be encouraged, put up a sail and send them out in a regattta...
