Wi-Fi enabled, Mobile Ready, Solar Tent

I really struggled to think of a suitable title for this post. There are so many things about this innovative tent concept that you just can’t describe it with a few words.

Anyway let’s get started:
1. Do you notice that the tent is glowing in night as shown in the image to left? Now isn’t that cool. Here is how exactly it works. You send a SMS to your tent and it starts glowing to tell you its location, so that you don’t loose it 🙂
2. This tent uses a special fabric to capture solar energy which can then further be used in many ways in your tent.
3. Wi-Fi and Mobile Charging – Yes true you have wi-fi inside this tent to use internet and you have a charging facility to charge mobiles or any portable device. Charging is done by using magnetic induction so no wires are required.
4. Internal Heating – Now the energy generated by the tent can also be used to automatically heat tent’s groundsheet once the interior temperature falls below a set level.
This tent concept is a vision by Orange and has been designed in association with Kaleidoscope. For official Press Release click here.
Now I don’t know how many people will actually like to use wi-fi or charge their mobiles while camping but I think automatic heating, night glow will definitely be handy and charging can be used to charge cameras as well. So let me know what do you think about this tent concept? Thanks for reading 🙂
