A German startup called Moruta has designed a tent that incorporates your bike into the support structure. The logic is that it keeps your bike dry, and makes it tricky for a thief to stealthily steal it while you’re sleeping.

The concept sounds interesting, but seeing the execution in the video raises some doubts:
For those of you who engage in bike-based camping, does this appeal to you? It doesn’t look to me like it makes the tent any easier to raise or sturdier. Are the dryness/anti-theft-ness strong enough incentives?
The tent is currently up on Kickstarter, with buy-in starting at $300.
