early prototypes in instant tent design. this model alone, seriously, took probably around 100 hours. the mechanics have been the worst part. using cheap and accessable materials. this model uses some bits of spring steel, ripstock nylon, and some PVC... but after a day of being folded up, did not open anymore due to the spring steel bending and holding its shape. a second prototype is due soon, and about another extra 100 hours have been spent on figuring out the mechanics using springs. not to mention the huge number of drawings, sketches, pattern stuff, teaching myself the sewing machine, working with insanely thick waterproof materials, etc etc!!! im stoked tho! final product will be due and refined in 2 weeks!!
