Individuals who wish to get more “alone time” can do so with this odd indoor “desk tent” from Japan.
Made by Japanese company Bibi Lab, the “Bocchi Tent” specifically targets gamers, creative types and people who prefer frequent periods of isolation from the rest of society, reports SoraNews24.
The word “bocchi” itself means “all alone” in otaku and online slang.
Shaped like a cube, the tent has enough room to fit one person and a desk. Bibi Lab claims that it has a zero lux rating when inside. This means the tent can completely block out light sources from outside. Some gamers and digital artists may find such a dark environment appealing.
Owners may use the Bocchi tent as a personal game room or as their very own “fortress of solitude” when they just want to step back from the rest of the world.
Despite being totally dark inside, the Bocchi tent appears to be well-ventilated. Air passes through mesh openings around the walls and from the top.
Owners may comfortably play games, create art, or simply surf the internet in peace. The top may also be zipped open at the owner’s discretion.
For indoor-types of people who don’t frequently engage in physical activities, the Bocchi tent will be easy to set up. It unfolds like one of those collapsable circular fans. Its lightweight material makes it possible to carry around without much effort. The tent has no floor so owners can simply place it over their computer desks.
There are currently two models up for sale: one with a width of 110 centimeters and a bigger one measuring 130 centimeters. Interested introverts may order through Amazon Japan for 10,346 yen (about P4,600). JB
