Bubble Outdoor Room: You Could Just Use a Tent
December 15th, 2012
The weather can be such a pain sometimes. One minute it’s warm and sunny out, the next it’s raining cats and dogs.
Normally, I don’t mind, but it becomes a problem if I’m heading out to meet up with friends or attend some sort of outdoor gathering.
However, international network City Mine(d) came up with a concept called ‘Bubble’ that should solve this problem. It’s a huge, inflatable, transparent plastic bubble that can be set up in public places so that whatever meetings or events can go on as planned, even in bad weather.
The Bubble has already been used successfully in Brussels, London and Barcelona to host events and festivals.
The makers explain the concept of Bubble:
The bubble is a large translucent bag the size of a basketball (50 by 20 feet) made of polyethylene greenhouse film and is inflated with a small fan. It takes less than an hour to put it up, and can stay up as long as there is electricity supply.
What they don’t explain is how they prevent those inside the bubble from asphyxiating.
