Sleeping in a leaky tent is far from comfortable and if you’re tent forms a hole while adventuring in the wilderness, patching it up can be an issue. Imperial Motion has created the world’s first self healing tent aptly named the Nano Cure Tent, which is capable of self-healing with just the rub of a finger repairing any holes or punctures that may occur. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the lightweight water resistant material NCT.
Imperial Motion explain a little more about the revolutionary material and the self-healing technology implemented into the tent fabric. “NCT is a lightweight, water resistant nylon ripstop with resealing and repairing capabilities. Naturally, nylon rip stop is extremely durable, but when combined with the special double sided coating and the heat of your fingers, small holes and punctures can be repaired. The reinforced fibers of the rip stop also create additional reinforcement and support around the puncture, which also aids in the repair function. The healing effect works very well on small punctures or lacerations which means we certainly don’t recommend testing your new tent with big scissors or knives.”
The Nano Cure Tent is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from $200 or roughly £153. Providing the first 500 lucky backers with one of the first self-healing tents available on the market. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful worldwide shipping is expected to take place during December 2018.
