GEAR ENVY: Solar Tents!

GEAR ENVY: Solar Tents!

 

usarmysolartent1

With increasingly more efficient solar panels hitting the market every year, and now flexible panels steadily becoming more affordable; it was only a matter of time before somebody decided to make a tent out of the things! Rumour has it that the US army is trialing the design that you see pictured above as we speak. With such a surface area they are capable of harnessing 3000 watts of power which is some serious next level shit! Added bonus: It looks like it would make quite an effective fly sheet to keep the tent cool!

Now we just gotta wait a bit for this to filter down to the consumer market! What do you reckon they will turn into a power source next?
