I’m not sure whether this tent would be on Ray Mears Christmas list but it’s definitely on mind. This high-tech Solar tent a vision of the future designed by Orange. Is constructed from photovoltaic fabric (coated fabric) which is specially coated solar threads woven into conventional fabric.
This synthetic fabric captures solar energy and converts it into power for your gadgets. The main solar panel’s move throughout the day to capture the sun’s energy and are connected to a wireless control hub where energy information is displayed.
The hub also controls the temperature of the tent and provides wireless Internet access. The groundsheet is fitted with a heating element to keep you cosy and warm on even the coldest night. It also has “glo-cation” technology installed which helps you to find your tent even on the darkest of nights.
Unfortunately this innovative tent is a new concept at the moment but I am sure it won’t be long until we see similar technology on the high street.
