These photos show our prototype ETFE pillows. The pneumatic ETFE pillow will be used to encapsulate our BioDomes, adding a number of beneficial characteristics. ETFE, compared to greenhouse glass, is 1% of the weight, transmits more light, and costs 24%-75% less to install. Other characteristics include being able to bear 400 times its own weight, 50-year life span, self-cleaning, and recyclable (http://bit.ly/v96qQ8).
