Pop-up campers have come a long way in terms of comfort and built-in technology, but for the most part the design has remained unchanged. Of course, it was only a matter of time until someone came up with something new and exciting and in this case, it could change how people look at their “home away from home,” according to Inventorspot.com. Calling the Mobile Mini House (shown in a computer rendering at left and below) a popup is slightly misleading, the website item concedes, as it expands outward rather than upward, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
Once parked, the Mobile Mini House unfolds, much like a Japanese Hand Fan, and covers a full 252 degrees. When opened, campers can live comfortably knowing you have a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, office and living room at their disposal. The rooms are divided by a system of lightweight walls that slide along a pair of tracks laid into the floor. The individual components of each room are either folded to save space or stored somewhere that can be easily accessed during setup. Once fully extended and everything has been arranged, a membrane can be stretched over the entire thing to keep the bugs and weather on the outside. The idea is just that and has yet to be built.
