The future of camping?

Is this the future of tent camping? Obviously not if you're a backpacker. But if you're into "glamping", that is, luxury camping or glamorous camping, this may be a perfect fit for you.

A firm out of the United Kingdom called Concrete Canvas Ltd has developed a technology, invented at Imperial College London in 2004, to create Concrete Cloth and Concrete Canvas Shelters.

Now if there are any enterprising entrepreneurs out there sitting on several acres of wooded land, this might be a great opportunity to build a campground comprised of these "concrete tents" for those that enjoy camping in the outdoors, but not quite to the extent of actually roughing it.

To get a better understanding of what this product is all about, check out this short video:
