CAMPING (REALLY) TOGETHER

It happens to every camping lovers. When you finally set up the same tent you've had for the last ten years, you'll find it too small to store every useless thing you remembered to carry with you.

Every camping lover wishes for a larger accommodation. But buying a really huge tent is not always the main original dream for someone who wishes to enjoy life outdoors, or simply to camp in some music festival.

The new alternative is to go for a Qube tent. It's a modular tent which offers and let you build your tent as large and spacy as you want. The Qube tent was created by the British inventor Jason Thorpe and it's designed to connect with any other Qube – there are two, three and four persons designs – allowing you to create a floor plan, suitable for both you and all your friends.

The tent can be set up in less than two minutes, more or less the same time it'll take to pack it before you leave. All you need to do is bend the flexible stakes and fold it away without effort. It is built with an origami inspired design and the packing bag is also provided with the tent.

The 215 cm high Qube tent is built with a highly reinforced quality nylon and the black lining guarantees total blackout for sleeping so you won't be rudely awakened early in the morning, as the sunlight enters through one of its four windows.

It also features a ventilation system that claims to reduce condensation and offers a strong rain protection.

The company is also offering a complete set of add-ons, such as you can equip a solar panel inside the window to store free solar power energy into a power bank, in order to use it later to charge a smartphone or power optional LED strips.

There are some downsides, though, as it's the case of its 32.65 pounds (15 kg) which makes it uncomfortable to carry it in a backpack and its cost – USD250 – which can also look a little overdue for a two person tent.
