Honeycomb Core for Lightweight Garden Construction

I am so interested in a product I have been reading about that seems as if it will vastly improve options for design and construction in the garden (amongst other things).  Sing honeycomb products are a green product that will cut down on cost and weight (and therefore transportation resources) and manufacturing  while increasing flexibility for its applications.

The product is a core that can be used inside concrete, wood, plastic, and metals.  Using it as the core of concrete makes a bench/ table/deck/counter top/etc.  such as this, 10% of the solid weight of the same sized bench, it is also stronger, less expensive and highly insulated.

Here is a bench with wood veneer

Interestingly, these guys are so confident of this product, that if you have an idea to use the product in a new interesting way, they will provide you with free materials for construction (see applications here).
