The flat-pack home that builds itself in under ten minutes

(CNN)Building a house is a lifelong dream for some. And thanks to new flat-pack homes, it’s one that can be achieved — in under ten minutes.

Created by UK firm Ten Fold Engineering, the uBox measures to about 645 square feet (60 square meters) once unfolded. The portable building can assemble itself automatically,without the need for foundations or heavy machinery.
De Boer said that the uBox product is in its “very first stages” and would not reveal how many units the company had sold. Ten Fold Engineering units cost upwards of $129,000 (100,000) each.
Despite the potential benefits of portable homes, Ten Fold does not consider itself to be in conflict with traditional architecture.
“Our technology should be seen as complementary and supportive to the traditional infrastructure industry,” De Boer said. “These structures are transportable property assets.”
“I’m not claiming that everybody should have these, because not everybody needs them,” Martyn added. “It’s a tool to help us all do more things better.”
