Solar Powered Tent ( Solar Thermal Magazine) – So why in the world would you need a solar powered tent? Actually it is not so much solar powered as it is solar power equipped. Now you see it right?
Imagine this! A Weekend In Your Solar Powered Tent.
So you are camping by the lake hoping to get away from it all with your friends or family but off course you brought along some or all of you electronic devices such as ipad,smart phone and maybe your portable stereo. To cook your fish you either use the fire or some kind of portable gas stove.
This invention named the Orange Tent produces clean energy when the sun is shining to do just that.
Of course there are other reasons to want to be able to use solar power when camping instead of making a fire. Climate change is bringing drought to so many areas now around the world. Public camping spaces may restrict your ability to have a fire at all. With solar you are doing your part to save the environment not just because of the zero emissions but also from forest fires.
The Orange solar powered tent has 3 sliding thin film solar pv panels that catch the suns rays and block heat into the tent itself. There is a power bar in the tent that you can tap into for clean free power.
You can see in one of the pictures and the video that at night the tent glows orange which is pretty cool but for sure is using up your stored energy.
The video shows the solar powered tent being used a music concert maybe like a modern day Woodstock where everyone sleeps over. I wonder what Woodstock would have been like if this technology was available?
