Idea for Turning Infinity Bakery Solar Oven Prototype into Solar Reflective Heated Folding Shelter

Yesterday, I came across a UK Cambridge Uni team, who in 2014 Designed a solar oven  HERE

My basic idea is to use similar functions, but turn it into a shelter by having 2 facing curved reflective sides that move to form a roof at night for a shelter. During daylight sunny hours the roof folds down to heat a plinth like in the Infinity bakery.

If a bakery is not required, ir could heat water or soil / brick blocks to store heat for the cold night ahead.
Edit: perhaps this plinth could form a  work table / bed base.

2nd Edit: Having thought about the design for a few hrs, I cannot work out how to  have 2 curved reflective panels on one pedastal, so it's perhaps best to stick with one & have a seperate , removeable panel for the shelter walls. Otherwise use 2 units side to side

1 HC 40 ft Shipping Container of Metal Skinned Kingspan Sandwich Panels & 140 roof sheets are going to Sierra Leone to build low income shelters.

This was via a third party working with a charity in Sierra Leone

Thanks to James, our panel supplier for his donation of 40 extra sheets for free. Glue, nails, tools & other new materials were supplied for them to build with.

We hope to get some feedback in 2 months.

Plan to make a low cost hardware kit to allow low income groups to build locally sourced (preferably reused) panels to make foldable shelters like Hexayurts, or for childrens play dens, animals pens or room dividers to reduce heating costs and noise
