Instant bunker, just add water

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Compared to a canvas tent, it is probably better insulated, might stop small arms, etc.

OTOH it seems to be semi-permanent. Can't just knock it down, fold it up, and move to new location to set it up again.

Brilliant!  In a disaster situation these could be invaluable for setting up all kinds of relief facilities.  They could probably use a bunch of these in Africa right now to use as isolation facilities for ebola victims.  Haiti would consider these a massive upgrade for most any residence there.

Great idea and no government in sight...

Did a back of the envelope calc, and they should be able to stop small arms fire dead, too. Useful for FOBs.

The technology might be useful in conjunction with "3D printed" structures, as a simple yet strong material.

Only problem I see is the floor. If it's dirt, I think it let water in. Ditto cold. Be nice with some windows, too.
