Orange Solar Tent for trips in wild with electronic ammunition
Luxury campers with eco values are simply going to appreciate the “tent of the future” as envisioned by Orange. Camping needs have gone just too modern. To address the same, Orange has revealed the new “Solar Concept Tent” that will make sure that your essential camping gadgets never run out of power in the wild. Designed in collaboration with American product design consultancy Kaleidoscope, the Orange Solar Concept Tent harnesses solar energy to charge your gadgetry through a wireless charging pouch. The tent features photovoltaic fabric in three directional glides, which move throughout the day to capture the maximum sun energy. The specially coated solar threads are woven into conventional fabric and are easy to fold. The integrated “glo-cation” technology will help the campers track the location of their tent. With the glo-claton, campers can use mobile phones to identify their tent using either an SMS message or automatically active RFID technology. The tent will start glowing and could be easily located in the dark.
The Solar tent has a central wireless control hub that shows energy generated and consumed, and a wireless internet signal on a flexible, touchscreen LCD display screen. The central hub also controls an internal heating element, which is activated automatically once the interior temperature falls below a set level.

The development of photovoltaic fabric will revolutionise festival tent design, in working with Orange we have created a vision for a solar tent that we believe is a great glimpse of what’s to come.
