Cool Human Stuff

See through Bubble tents.

by Yahoo News:

BubbleTrees are anything but average tents. These prefabricated, globe-shaped tents are transparent so you can’t get much closer to nature unless you sleep outside. The tents, which are currently only available in Europe, come decked out with portable sofas, beds, and more. Some models even have wood floors. Others are designed specifically for the beach or to use as tree houses.

How do they work? Just pump up a tent with the provided electric air blower. The blower, which has an air filter, circulates fresh air and provides the air pressure needed to maintain the bubble shape. See the manufacturer’s website for more details on how this works. Like ordinary tents, they can heat up quite a bit, so you’ll want to install them in a shady spot during the summer.

One of these pop-up dwellings costs about $9,000 to $17,000, depending on which model and extras you choose.


First thoughts in my head: BUBBLE BOY


I wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon lounging around in a bubble tent, it looks so tranquil.
