For those who like to “hang out” this suspended tent is a wonderful invention.
This isn’t some surreal work of art or alien structure – it’s a tent! The Tentsile, a portable suspended tent (Tent? Treehouse? Hammock?) created by UK-based inventor Alex Shirley-Smith, solves the problem of setting up camp on rocky, muddy, or otherwise unpleasant surfaces by hanging from the trees.
In addition to avoiding unpleasant conditions, the treehouse tent also avoids ground-based bugs, snakes, and other larger and more dangerous creatures. And it helps people enjoy the wonder of hanging out in trees; “Maybe by encouraging others to enjoy this, we might think twice about cutting them down,” writes Shirley-Smith.
