Unlike many UF-themed dreams, including quite a number I have had myself, that... contains nothing that is even a little unlikely. I may have to use that.
I'm envisioning the structure as something akin to the lead balloon they built on Mythbusters one time, which was constructed as a series of flat square and triangular panels so arranged as to more or less spontaneously self-erect into a cube shape when inflated. The portable shelter version would be supported by tension in the shell, rather than internal gas pressure, but the geometry is similar...
Hmm. Yes. I may have to steal this. :)
