The Piilo: What is it?

Okay, it's time to play guess that travel gadget again! Above is the Piilo. Do you know what it is? It's either a:
  1. Theft-proof money pouch.
  2. Protective cover for a snowboard.
  3. Futuristic tent design.
  4. Smog-reducing face mask.
What do you think? Find out after the jump.

If you guessed a futuristic tent design, you're right!

The Piilo probably isn't something you'd take on your next camping trip, but it sure is interesting to look at. According to the designer, Markus Michalski, "the object is designed for the interior as a private secret retreat. it can be used at home, on the road or in the office."

No other details -- like will it keep rain out? -- are available, and it's not actually for sale. Yet. If it does become commercially available in the future, we'll let you know. [via]
