What is the main idea?
The point to out product is to keep someone warm. What keeps someone warm? A tent! So by creating one that is wearable, we eliminate building and placing a tent in a harsh condition, like the arctic, and make it "wearable." The "cocoon" feel on the Wearable Tent is meant to insulate someone, while at the same time look interesting and esthetically pleasing.
What is the design problem? What are you trying to solve?
We are trying to solve the problem that people face living in harsh weather conditions, like the severe cold. By creating a wearable that can be used in such climate, our group has eliminated the hassle of putting together a tent, and the struggle of finding the perfect place to put a tent. Tents also keep you warm using insulation and barriers from the wind and cold air.
Why is this project important?
This project enables people to have barrier between themselves and whichever harsh condition they live in. It is specified for the cold because the enclosed/ bundled feeling of a tent is helpful when dealing with cold weather.
