EE is bringing its “smart tent” to the 2017 Glastonbury Festival offering users with a steady supply of drink, a comfortable bed, and superfast broadband access. The tent has a smart fridge that automatically tweets when it runs out of water or booze. It also has inbuilt entertainment centre where users get to watch BBC’s comprehensive coverage of the festival alongside customer virtual reality (VR) content. The tent, which is solar powered, also features a smart security camera that allows users to check in their belongings.
Mat Sears, director of communication and sponsorship at EE, said: “While camping is a massive part of any music festival, it’s not always the most comfortable experience, so we wanted to create a 4GEE Smart Tent that tested the latest tech-inspired comforts,”
“The on-site 4G network we’re providing to Glastonbury revellers this year is the most powerful we’ve ever put in, and will help create the ultimate connected camping experience,” added Sears.
“We’re looking forward to selecting the one lucky Glastonbury-goer who’ll get to stay in the tent and enjoy it in all its high-tech glory.”
