Wow, I would love to try one of these Bubble Tents (created by French designer Pierre-Stéphane Dumas) whenever I go camping! Imagine sleeping in complete darkness, avoiding all the pesky critters from outside, but still being able to stare at the night sky without any worries?
I began to think about how creepy it would be if you were lying there and saw someone just standing outside watching you. Then I realised it was probably worse in a normal tent, where you don't know if there's someone right outside, listening to you.
+Wendy Bennett Heck, I'm in Massachusetts, just west of Boston, and even we'd see some big stuff here. Maybe not a big ol' bear, but deer/moose... I wonder if they'd get through the plastic or just bounce us around in it like a BubbleBoy. :)
Forget about privacy. I do not want to know what manner of critter wanders past my tent at night. But after we suffocate (thanks +Sukree Kaeomanee ) and cook (thanks, +Michael Miller), at least +Craig Brunetti 's bears will have a good feast.
That is nice if you are in your back yard with a fence around it or camp in the woods with people far away from your campsite. Sorry to say we live in a society where people have a tendency to help themself to other people stuff when no ones around. Wish we didn't have to think like that but what's real is real. It would be great to see the star before falling asleep.
Its a great idea but if your carrying that much stuff with you through the forest then you better be putting up a log cabin not a tent. Hell the tent even comes with a fence to keep out peepers and a place mate to make leave ground... I want one now!!!
Wow ..So many thinking..."why did i not think of that" I would like one. I live in One of the coldest yet sunniest cities in Canada... We have sunlight for more than 18 hours in peak summer. Would love to have one in my back garden and paint.
Start mass producing these now! I believe that this is a step towards a new generation of camping, and it definitely won't be long until we see campers like this. All it needs is some tech baked into it.
Question is what is the bubble made off? no point getting somethig that might burst by accident... and how do you clean it? what about fresh air? I DONT WHAT TO BE BREATHING IN CO2 for hours! not cool.
Come on people... it is not a camping tent...this is a secluded backyard bedroom to spend the night gazing at the stars without the bugs or the weather getting in the way. Anything cool like this is almost certainly going to be way more expensive than it has to be..
