An expandable structure formed from a single piece of material is moveable between a stowed position and an extended position. The structure has a base and a plurality of support members integral with the base that move between a stowed position and an extended position. In the stowed position, the base and the plurality of support members are essentially a two dimensional shape. A biasing force makes the structure self-erecting and moves it to the extended position. In the extended position, the expandable structure has a hollow interior and a cross-sec...
1. A unitary expandable structure moveable between a stowed position and an extended position, the structure comprising: a base; anda plurality of interconnected support members separated by slits in the base and connected with respect to each other at an angle and unitary with the base, wherein the support members move between a stowed position and an extended position, wherein in the extended position the expandable structure has a cross-section that is bounded by a closed path, and wherein each of the slits opens in an arcuate shape having a radius wh...
