Sibling's Walking Shelter packs a tent into a pair of shoes
August 12, 2013
Recently unveiled by Australian design collective Sibling, Walking Shelter is a sort of tent designed to be stowed away in netted compartments on the backs of your shoes.
If there's a weakness to this otherwise inspired concept, it may be that it relies on the human body for structural support. So though you can make a vaguely tent-like shape by sitting bolt upright …
… it may be that, if you're hoping to get some actual sleep, you'd be better off with a good old fashioned tarp.
However, Sibling describes this as a one-off prototype, developed for an auction to raise money for small Australian charity Little Seeds Big Trees which provides art therapy for children. We can't argue with that.
