BORDEAUX – An inventor in Bordeaux has a ’insulated igloo’ has been developed where the homeless can find shelter. French media reported on Monday that the ’igloo’ is designed and built by Geoffroy de Reynal. Its structure is called ’iglou’ and is on the ground, 2 at 1.20 meters large. It has a semi-circular canopy.
The invention is made of aluminum and foam. The igloo is according to the 26-year-old engineer Reynal to a temperature that is fifteen degrees higher than outside, at least if there is someone in.
With ten ’iglous’ is the invention, since december in Bordeaux tested. And now the ’Siberian’ cold in France, does that extra in interest. Ten prototypes have been to Paris, sent in this ice-cold week to be tried out. As possible leads the cold to an “industrial production of the iglou”, hopes the engineer.
