French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas turned the world of camping upside down when he created the BubbleTree. The first of its kind see-through tent allows campers all the creature comforts of a bed and security, while still providing an all-access pass to an evening under the stars and the sunrise. They come in a few different models that range from elegant simplicity to exquisite sophistication.

The CristalBubble design accommodates two adults and lets campers see all 360 degrees around them, as it is completely transparent. For those to whom privacy is paramount, Dumas fashioned a model he describes as a "cocooning" version of the Cristal, which has walls around the tent but is still open to the sky. Dumas also boasts a roomier version of the tent called the BubbleLodge, which contains additional space for a converted second room or bathroom.

For now, the tents are only available in France and can be rented for about $625/night or bought outright for just under $12,000. Dumas designed the BubbleTree products to increase man's proximity with nature, while minimizing environmental impact. Surely, this revolutionary provide will win over the novice and avid camper alike.

No longer will the creatures of the night limit your ability to experience nature to the fullest. No longer will you tuck in at night, wondering what celestial mysteries you are missing. When Pierre Stephane Dumas saw an unnecessary sacrifice going on in the world of camping, he willed it to change. And, where there is a will, there is a way.
