Inflatable Privacy

Via BoingBoing comes a pretty crazy little idea: an inflatable room for teens so that they can have their own private space wherever they go.

Where exactly would you use this, though? And do we need to encourages teenagers to be more anti-social?

It's the modern way to build a bed fort, that's all. Hopefully it comes with an internet connection.

If teenagers want a bed fort they can use blankets and closhesline like we did back in the olden days.

I'd be more concerned about that teenagers are using the space for.

Reminds me of high school. Kids who smoked wanted a way to smoke without standing outside in the freezing winter, hip-deep in snow.

One of them suggested a "plastic bubble tent".

I just kept thinking... yeah, let's put them all in an airtight plastic bubble tent with their cigarettes burning up all the oxygen. Yeah...

What is this then?
