Hot Tub Hammock Finally Solves Camping, Lacks Time Travel Capabilities

Just because you are camping doesn’t mean you have to rough it.

A new breakthrough in hammock technology has outdoorsy individuals living the sweet life while camping.

NBC News directs our attention to the Hydro Hammock, a heavy-duty hammock that doubles as a hot tub — although there is no word on whether it also allows patrons to go back in time as well.

Even if it doesn’t break the laws of physics, it comes with already amazing amenities. It will allow you to lounge between two trees in the woods or lie comfortably on the beach.

Yes, hammocks have been allowing for such things for years, but this one will also let you soak in the wonder that is heated water:

But please don’t fall asleep in the Hydro Hammock, or you will have to thaw out like Kramer:

As reported, creator Benjamin Frederick started a Kickstarter campaign to get his company going with production.

As of this writing, the campaign had raised over $45,000 of its $50,000 goal. With 15 days left, we say the chances are good for backers to get the only item you need for luxury camping.

You can also get more information at the product’s website, which promises the following: “Hydro Hammocks require less water than bathtubs and have a slip resistant texture. The shapes are adjustable and are easy to set up either fully or partially suspended.”

Now this writer isn’t one to enjoy camping. With all the insects, lack of Wi-Fi and severe shortage of buffet options, I would much rather party it up in a hotel.

But then this invention comes calling and I reconsider my disdain for the great indoors.

Someone invent a tent with a waterbed and we are in business.
