Thanks to the latest creation by geek gear designer Dave Delisle , Trekkies can now set up camp and star gaze in true Star Trek style. The Star Trek Shuttlecraft Tent is a two-person tent shaped just like the actual shuttlecraft in the show. Oh, and the carrying case? When not in use, it splits apart to become the craft’s thrusters. Collaborating with The North Face, the design team created the shuttlecraft tent to be a compact replica of the Federation shuttle from the iconic series, although, unfortunately, it isn’t able to travel through the galaxy just yet. True trekkies will recognize the small, but authentic touches such as the entrance at the back, just like the true shuttlecraft.

And for all of you who are thinking that most Star Trek fans don’t, well, trek, Delisle would like to remind you that Star Trek V began with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy camping in the great outdoors . + Dave Delisle Via My Modern Met

T.Bar, located in Panama City, took natural food a step further by bringing nature indoors. While the restaurant serves fast, causal food, they place an emphasis on natural, healthy fare. On their Facebook page they say they want guests to feel relaxed and cozy in their space, but they didn’t stop at comfy armchairs or the booth seating lining one wall. Flourishing plants really create an atmosphere of peace.

According to the architects, T.Bar requested that patrons be able to watch their food being prepared, which they accomplished through ” a glass .” Concrete planters for the trees include tiny tables to allow patrons to get even closer to nature. The designers said this touch adds to the informal feel of the restaurant. Lichen and moss grow on living walls on both sides of the restaurant and in the back near the bathroom. The interior design of the restaurant takes green design literally, bringing the outdoors inside. Via Contemporist Images courtesy of Mosh Benjamin, Pro Pixel Panama
