Having just spent a weekend camping isolated in the mountains, we've really come to appreciate a break from the city and technology.

The Orange Solar Concept Tent, created with Kaleidoscope, uses moveable photovoltaic fabric panels to maximize solar efficiency. The solar energy would provide campers power for a wireless charger for camping gadgets and cell phones, a Wi-Fi control center and built-in "in-floor" (groundsheet) heating. Additionally at night, using "Glo-cation technology", the tent glows when the camper texts it or gets near to it so the tent could be located in the dark.
