Tents can be a pain in the arse to set up thanks to tangling poles, messy folds and more, but the Heimplane Cave simplifies the setup for easy erection. In place of a traditional metal frame, the Hemiplanet Cave boasts an inflatable one that requires only one pump to fill. The result is a convenient, futuristic-looking piece of outdoor shelter that perpetuates the carefree getaway mentality that people are expecting on their camping trips.

The shape of the Heimplanet Cave itself is inspired by a diamond, which is known for its hardiness. The frame, appropriately dubbed Inflatable Diamond Grid (IDG) is a multi-chamber system that ensures the entire structure doesn’t deflate if one section is punctured.
