A 'magic tent' for mountaineers?

An "all-in-one" shelter system has been developed for mountaineers. Inside the shelter conditions remain comfortable whatever the weather outdoors, thanks to a sophisticated dehumidifying system and a fine-tuned temperature control mechanism.

I have been waiting for something like this to replace tents and sleeping bags. Must be fine for QRP / SOTA expeditions into the mountains? Maybe also for certain other contingencies?

Due to hard use and a long'ish life, my days of carrying a rucksack are over, so a motorized micro-camper would likely suit me better . . .  There's room for a mobile rig too: as long as it's an MTR !

Me too Ray, my problem anymore is that once I get down on the ground I have real trouble getting back up !  So I could still camp in a tent but it would be a big one that was hauled to site and included at least a cot to get me up off the ground to sleep on.   My days of sleeping Ron Hood style on a bed of pine needles are long gone !

Just to follow up my original post: That Swiss company is now ready to take orders:

Two-and-a-half thousand dollars and up I'd rather go for a pre-assembled Elecraft KX3 with all possible add-ons and accesories.
