Gallery: Heimplanet’s Inflatable Geodesic Dome Tent Sets Up in a Snap!


Hamburg-based Heimplanet unveiled their new tent at this year’s inspiring DMY event in Berlin. Stable and efficient, “The Cave” offers plenty of space for 3 to sleep, or 6 to sit together, thanks to its unique diamond shape. Made from super durable synthetic materials that both are waterproof and lightweight, the best part of about this dome is that you can inflate it all in one go!

    Does it have to be put together before inflated?? How big of box to store it? !!lbs does that include the pump? Yes I agree it wouldn’t be good for adventure camping. But how about for my earthquake kits for temporary coverage? Then the Big question is how much!!!

    “Ideal for trekking and hiking excursion that require instant shelter without all the fuss,”
    – Provided you are happy to carry the bulky and heavy looking pump on your hike.

    “The Cave” can be inflated in no time. Thanks to a Multi Chamber Safety System (patent-pending), the user can inflate the entire frame in a single step because all parts are connected together.
    – One sharp twig or stone and the thing is a useless piece of plastic destined for the land fill.

    Heimplanet’s geodesic shelter is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to take on a wild adventure”
    -provided you do not come into contact with any thing sharp on you wild adventure and you want to carry that pump around.

    Interesting concept and form. Though at 11.46 lbs this is hardly lightweight, especially for a 2-3 person tent. Standard backpacking tents weigh half that or less. I guess this is intended as a fancy car-camping solution?
