The next time you want to play Mission to Mars, and pretend you've got one of those spacecraft tents you see on Star Trek, you'd do well to use the Octagon Tent-in-a-box. Developed by Sago Mokuzai, the portable home was designed for emergency use, but given its small size and convenience it's certain that some urban adventurers will take this thing to the next, semi-permanent, level.
