That's amazing! I've seen the toy expanding spheres and also market stalls that expand but not geodesic domes. It looks really impressive and would be great for quick deployment. That's a cool site by the way, truly innovative dome design.
A great concept but very difficult to build.
Making the linkages would be the hardest part of this dome. The basic design is a simple 4v-class 2 icosa. A 26ft diameter x 12ft high dome like this requires 175 struts. A total of 5 different lengths, none of which would be longer than about 5ft.
