UNICEF's Future Relief Parcels Will Provide Food, Water and Shelter in One Lego-Shaped Brick

By Adrian Covert on at

You'd think there isn't much room for innovation when it comes to delivering emergency rations to refugees and disaster victims, but that's not quite the case. UNICEF has tapped design firm Psychic Factory to develop an aid package that not only carries food and water, but also helps build a shelter.

Each package is shaped like a Lego brick, with each raised bump serving as the access point for the food and water compartments. When those supplies run out, you can fill the plastic container with sand and soil, and snap them together to fashion a temporary shelter. [Psychic Factory via PSFK via Inhabitat]
