Digs on the Drop


Air drops for disaster relief can mean the difference between life and death. This concept expands on the existing service to provide not only supplies but shelter for individuals in need.

The idea combines the functionality of a parachute and a tent. Whether it’s in a war torn area or natural disaster zone, Airborne Tent comes in like a parachute and airdrops supplies for the victims. Beyond delivering supplies, the parachute also readily transforms into a temporary tent for the victims who need shelter. A built-in pump makes it quick and easy to inflate without the need for additional tools or even much construction know-how.
