Go camping in an inflatable geodesic dome


Geodesic domes have been used for everything from playground climbing equipment to homes, and now you can camp in one.  The Cave from Heimplanet doesn’t use poles, but instead uses inflatable tubes from which you suspend the tent.  It’s big enough to sleep 2-3 people, and it has storage pockets built in to help hold their gear.  The tent folds down into a pack 20″ x 12″ x 8″ and weighing 11.5 pounds.  (You’ll need to add a pump to your gear to inflate the tent.)  It opens into a structure that covers 54 square feet and is 40″ tall inside.  It costs €549.00 including 19% VAT, which converts to about $707.  I don’t know if they ship to the US, but you could contact them to ask about shipping or to see if they have international dealers.

    They seem to offer international shipping via DHL:

    I had a friend that owned something similar 15 years ago. He paid a FORTUNE for it. I think he paid like $3000+. Granted it was much larger. He hadn’t yet tethered it down, when the desert winds kicked in. In just a few minutes his tent was a speck in the distance, we never found it. He was a very grumpy man the rest of that trip.
