The future of camping
The world’s first 4G-connected smart tent will be live at Glastonbury Festival — featuring a mini fridge, live streams of performances and a security system.
Technology in the tent includes the fridge tweeting when stocks are running low and streams of six stages from across the 360 ha festival site.
There is voice-controlled LED lighting and music for a disco, along with solar-powered wellington boot warmers to dry out wet footwear if it rains.
A security camera inside the tent, which will also act as a 4G wifi hotspot, will live stream via an app for campers to keep an eye on their belongings.
Finding the tent among Glastonbury Festival’s million square metres of public camping will be simple — with a beacon on top lighting up when the master phone approaches.
The festival kicks off Wednesday with headliner Radiohead playing on Friday.
