Foldable Lonely Tent

Foldable-Lonely-tent

There are times when you need to shield yourself from the outside world, but are too far from home to just ‘go inside’. Well, the BT1-11 Foldable Lonely Tent is designed to give you an easily-deployed cube of solitude when you’re outdoors. Unfolding easily, somewhat like a folding reflector, the BT1-11 stands 1300mm (51in.) x 1600mm (63in.) x 1300mm (51in.) when fully open and weighs just 2.2kg (4.85lbs.). It’s not meant to replace a full tent, but instead to serve as a makeshift office where photographers out in the field can quickly do their thing while blocking out some of the sun. There are air vents so you don’t completely suffocate on hot days, and then entire thing is expected to cost around $80 when it’s released. We don’t know when that’ll be, though.

Hemiplanet Cave Is An Inflatable Tent That Can Take A Beating

By David Ponce

Going camping is all fun and games until you have to actually pitch a tent. Pitching a tent isn’t fun and it’s no game. At least not for this klutzy editor. But the Hemiplanet Cave looks a lot simpler and a lot sturdier than your average everyday tent. Featuring a geodesic dome-like structure made from inflatable TPU bladders, a single pump is able to go from limp to rigid in a matter of minutes. The frame is shaped this way because it mimics the molecular structure of a diamond, a material known for its hardness; the frame is thus appropriately called Inflatable Diamond Grid” – IDG. The Cave sits six and sleeps three adults and a multi-chamber system ensures that even if one of the bladders is punctured, the entire thing doesn’t just deflate like a balloon.

High-tech tents don’t come cheap however: the Hemiplanet Cave is €500.
