The first book of SM Stirling's 'Change' series titled 'Dies the Fire' is an excellent exploration of surviving a complete collapse of technology. He even mentions non-fiction books worth hunting down as source material.

'Zombies' are a convenient way of short circuiting the basic psychological response to 'hey, that's a fellow human being I am about to kill'. If 'they' are already 'dead' it gives you license to engage in *ANY* behavior necessary to make the 'problem' go away.

In other words, it is an escape mechanism.

Maybe it's something to do with being male?? And my wife observes that successful long term relationships seem to have this dynamic... My first (now ex-wife) was also an exo-therm. Hmm...

Big plus for maps: No batteries.

My problem is that I am an active exo-therm. I usually end up too warm and kick the blankets off. Even while camping, I will flip the sleeping bag open to cool off in the middle of the night. My wife loves the fact I keep her warm in the middle of a BC coastal winter with snow up to your butt...

It sounds like it's was created in England. If you could buy one, I bet the import duties would be stiff. As well as making the various Federal agencies go 'Hmm, now why is a civilian buying one of these things? Let's pull his/her records and see what else they have bought recently...'

The only downsides I see are you need a steady power supply for the inflation blower, and a large pumpable water supply. Both of which may not be available in the location you eventually decide to erect it in.

Otherwise, yes, very neat bit of tech.
