Revealed: The World's First Self-Repairing Tent

Self-healing tents that are capable of repairing themselves? It sounds like something from science fiction. But the technology is here and the world’s first regenerating tents are now a reality.

At first glance, the Nano Cure Tent from US firm Imperial Motion looks like any other technical tent. But it has hidden superpowers that mean small punctures can be magically fixed in a few seconds with the rub of a finger.

Nano Cure Technology is a lightweight, water resistant nylon ripstop fabric which Imperial Motion says has resealing and repairing capabilities.

Naturally, nylon ripstop is extremely durable, but when combined with the special double sided coating and the heat from fingers, small holes and punctures can be quickly repaired.

Imperial Motion has been using the NCT material in backpacks, duffel bags, hammocks and jackets since 2016 but this is the first time it has been put to work in a tent.

Co-founder Steve Goetz said: “When we launched the first collection of Nano Cure Technology products, people loved being able to not only repair their jacket, but tell a story with it.

“When people spend their hard earned money on something it is important they are able to feel like they hit on three key aspects - Fashion, Function and Fun. When we created the tent and we felt like this was something people could feel good about every time they go to use the product.”

As well as its futuristic properties, the Nano Cure looks like a lightweight, solidly built four berth tent with water resistant coating, ventilated mesh windows and top and a tarpaulin groundsheet. Imperial Motion has been funding the tent on Kickstarter with pledges starting at around £150.
