On the long road to a new home—sometimes walking more than 4,000 miles from Afghanistan to the Hungarian border—refugees can barely carry personal belongings, let alone a tent.
A new design is meant to make shelter a little easier to carry: During the day, it's an ultra-lightweight jacket that protects someone from the elements. At night, it expands into a basic tent for a parent and a child, or two spooning adults. (It's like a more portable, summer version of this coat-turned-sleeping bag for homeless people).
The Wearable Habitation coat is made of a thin, waterproof material called Tyvek, often used on aircraft, and lined with Mylar - a material used to provide extra insulation.
Waterproof pockets on the inside mean passports, wallets, photographs and any other valuables needing protection from the harsh environment can be protected.
