Turkish-based design studio Nobis (via DesignBoom
) has developed a solar tent to charge electric car batteries.
The V-Tent is more than that, however. It also features small ventilation tubes beneath the solar panels to keep the interior cool when the car is parked under the sun for a long period.
Drivers can access the tent via their smartphone, and pay the charging fees on a small stand integrated into the machine. A lighting system shows whether the tent is available, charging, or charged.
While the V-Tent is just a concept for now, mass production isn't out of the question.
