Instant bunker, just add water

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

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.
