One of the best things about being a remote worker is having the freedom to hit the road and become a digital nomad.
For many location-independent workers, this means investing in an RV or van and fully committing to a wandering lifestyle. However, there’s a new option available for part-time nomads who want to travel in their car.
Carsule, manufactured by Mogics, is a pop-up cabin that attaches to hatchback vehicles, providing office and living space for on-the-go professionals.
Unlike most conventional tents, this Kickstarter-funded product is tall enough to stand in, with a height of 6.5 feet. It also has a 6.6-by-5.9 foot floor space, giving you plenty of room for a desk and chair, lounging furniture or beds.
The Carsule can be set up in less than five minutes and is surprisingly sturdy.
With the help of an adaptive seal, it latches onto the back of any car or SUV with an upward-opening hatchback, using the tailgate for structural support and added shelter. It can also be tethered to the ground with guy ropes, so it won’t blow over in windy weather.
The Carsule’s exterior shell is waterproof and UV resistant, and it features three multi-layer windows that can be fully opened for panoramic views, covered with mesh for bug-free airflow or closed for complete privacy.
Inside, diagonal ceiling tension lines help the roof keep its shape and also offer a handy place to hang lights or clothes. The floor is covered with a thick, waterproof felt carpet for added comfort and warmth.
If needed, the cabin can detach from your vehicle and stand on its own. When not in use, it folds up neatly for storage.
The Carsule, which retails for around $300, is the perfect option for remote workers who want to pursue the digital nomad dream on a budget.
