Prime picnicking time is fast approaching [yay!] which gives reason to consider an updated alternative to the wicker-hamper-and-blanket scenario. The Technopicnic caters to footloose gourmets who have separation anxiety when it comes to their electronic devices, as it incorporates USB ports, Bluetooth technology, and solar-powered lights. More corporeal comforts include seating cushions and a folding table. Still in the concept phase, I can see the equipment having applications not just in the camping and leisure fields, but in emergency housing, as well. atelierteratoma.com
