When you go out camping, especially with your motorcycle, the issue is that you are away from civilization, ie, away from electricity. So when you are somewhere in some field, pitch your tent, you will not be able to use your smartphone, pad, pod and/or portable computer for very long. You just don't have a plugin point inside your tent to charge your gadget.

But not if Orange has its way; Orange Open Orange in a new window is the French telecom giant, and they have design a concept tent that has as roof a solar panel. In fact, the photovoltaic fabric is partially woven into the tent and assembled in a shell-like cover. The shell can be oriented towards the sun to get the maximum exposure..

Orange Solar Concept Tent

This allow the tent to store electricity during the day. There are little pouches inside the tent; drop your smartphone into one of the pouches and your phone gets charged via induction.

But what's more, the tent responds to SMS messages (remember that Orange is a telecom company) if you've lost your tent and are trying to geo-localize it. And if there's a Wifi signal around, it can boost that signal.

So, there you go ... next time you go camping, you can actually bring your gadgets with you. The only point remaining is how big the tent is when folded. Maybe you'll need a trailer...
