That’s right, on the edge of a cliff. (See pic below.) Since mountaineering figures high on the list of adventurous manly deeds, especially among alpine countries, one Italian design firm created the ultimate doomsday shelter. Oops! Turns out it’s not so much a doomsday shelter but an extremely portable habitat for mountaineering expeditions.
See, while mountaineering is an exhaustive challenge, the logistics often impact the environment. Case in point: mountain ranges tend to be littered with mountaineer’s detritus. Sad but true. So rather than pitch tents places, just let a helicopter bering in an insta-house.
Thus, the LEAP has come to be. Designed and built by the LEAPfactory, the LEAP does two things very well: Provide shelter in frigid conditions and allow mountaineers to rest. To this end, its four compartments are good for basically sleeping and eating.
No price on this yet, but this eco-friendly, independently powered, lightweight habitat sure is quite the creative solution.
