With the call out for Meredith Music Festival ballot entries arriving at my inbox Wednesday (I know, it’s that time already?), I am dreaming of the 2nd weekend in December.

Each year there are certain things you can generally bank on. Besides having a glorious time, bumping into long lost friends up front of stage and either surviving heatstroke or torrential rain I will, without a doubt over pack.  Every journey home involves me at least once telling myself to do it more simply next time (this generally occurs at the point where I need to cart it all back exhaustingly into the house). 

Well it appears that Martin Azua might indeed have the answer. A blinging portable structure that can be inflated by either the suns rays or human body heat.  It fits neatly in your pocket prior to use and unlike all tents I’ve ever owned fits right back in again when you are done. The best part however is its glorious metallic finish, one structure that you couldn’t loose in the sea of tents!

This concept was first exhibited at the MOMA in New York way back in 2005 so hopefully a rich financial backer has picked it up and propelled it into production.
