E-glamp is a product/service that has been designed to boost economic and tourist development in rural areas. Think of it as an Airbnb-style tiny house merged with a biking network like Bird or Lime. It is an integrated system of modern cabins that are all independently powered by solar panels. These tiny homes are also fitted with smart tech and are connected to the e-bike system which encourages carbon-neutral exploration of the landscape. Biking not only helps to maintain the pristine air quality of the rural area but also helps in getting an enjoyable workout in. All the E-glamp houses are modular, movable, and constructed with sustainable materials like timber. Along with solar panels, it will be interesting to see how the design is able to also repurpose and reuse rainwater for the guest’s needs.
The smart cabin system comes with its own app that lets you manage your experience right from booking the accommodation and checking in to discovering nearby trails as well as keeping your bikes charged. E-glamp was created to take advantage of experiential tourism and promote underrated local gems like vineries, farms, and hill stations that often go unnoticed because tourists only flock to famous big cities. As we all still wait for the pandemic to slowly fade and border restrictions to ease, this is a wonderful new way to boost local tourism and create travel bubbles while maintaining social distance. E-glamp gives sustainable tourism a smart upgrade and has also been nominated for the Green Concept Awards 2021!
