The portable pop-up gaming room is here

Artem Uarabei

Privacy. Sometimes we all crave a little. "Bocchi tent" is a 1.3 x 1.3-meter, soft-cornered cube that maker Bibi Lab reckons offers the "ultimate gaming space." With a slender gossamer wall between you and the rest of humanity, there's a degree of sensorial blockage, but we could, obviously, still hear the din of the Tokyo Game Show floors - headphones will be necessary if you're looking to block out other people.

With all the space-age science of a pop-up tent, open up the storage pouch and the temporary gaming den makes itself - you'll just have to add the furniture. The tent is set to retail for 5,000 yen in Japan - and if you're particularly taken with the idea of your own flatpack Internet Cafe, at least it should fit in your suitcase.
