    Y’all think this would actually work? The mice I hunt have more sense than to hide in one of these here things

  2. Kane Prendervillek says:

    Where can we all buy one of these because we all want one it very small and easy to get around u should put up these for sale

  3. Ben Palmer says:

    the reflective surface would mean that no solar energy would get to the photovoltaic panels. Also, how the app know where the zombies are. otherwise, a solid idea, just needs a reality check.

    How do I go about buying the mobile safe house device

    Seriously, someone needs to make the Vagabond shelter so that I can buy it. Contrary to some of the bloggers on here, it would be helpful during a zombie apocalypse as well as some other survival scenarios.

  11. Oh now that is very cool.

      What confuses me, and what would be a major flaw is, how would you know the Zombies are gone? I mean, you out it up, your safe, I get that. But what happens when you wanna leave? I mean it’s cramped; you could only be in there for so long…
      I mean you would have to lift the bottom really, but what if they’re waiting, what if theres a fuck load and because you’ve lifted it up the zombies can get in.
      That’s just a thought.

    What really ticks me off is how over advertized this non existent product is. Either sell it or don’t advertize the crap, fuckin losers.

  19. alpinmack says:

    Nice product. I would totally buy one. I’ve got my own plan for when the zombies rise up here:

    всем привет
    говорят так зомби гуфа съели

  36. kulturmultur says:

    а зомби трахать можно?

  37. Истребитель дебилов says:

    А еще чеснок говорят помогает…

  38. Siberian bear. says:

    Это фуфло. Перевернут данную конструкцию. Против зомби отлично подходит копьё с крестовиной. А укрываться лучше на цеппелине. До зимы.

    This is bullshit. Flipped to the design. Vs. Zombies is great spear with a crosspiece. A better shelter for zeppelins. Before winter.

    Всего хорошего, good luck.

  39. Mr Smith says:

    So the whole point of PV cells is that they create electricity by absorbing light. If you make this thing reflect all the light away, your PV cells aren’t going to generate very much energy. Most commercial cells are also very fragile and will probably crack if a zombie hits them (or more realistically if they get tossed into a rucksack). The rest is a solid idea though! Maybe consider incorporating some Li ion batteries directly into the tent to store energy for when the sun isn’t out?

  40. J. Austin Fleming says:

    Thank you for all the wonderful comments, I really enjoy the feedback and have been reading through all the blog discussions! I’m glad everyone enjoys the design and it’s amazing how many people have a shared interests in this subject haha. This competition was alot of fun and I appreciate all the hard work from the folks involved in putting this on. Let’s make the v.MSHD a real product!

    • Aaron says:

      Sounds like you have a solid candidate for a Kickstarter campaign– now you just have to figure out how much money it would take to put these things into production!

  41. Alex Steele says:

    If you actually put this into production i would buy it definately xD, i love all things zombies and you never know it could help you survuive other horrible end of the world stuff, Great job man ;D

  42. Chase says:

    This is quite possibly the most ingenious device iv ever heard of. I would definatly buy one with or w/o a impending zombie apocalypse.

    If they’ve read Max Brooke’s ZSG, then why do they have a shotgun in their safe house instead of the .22 that he suggests?

  56. Jess says:

    What about the smell…. Zombies would be able to smell the living via the CO2 pipe at the top. They would give a most valiant effort to rip it apart.

  61. J. Austin Fleming says:

    Within the Mobile Skeleton, the spring-loaded ribs apply a counter weighted load evenly dispersed on the periphery of the cabin. The concrete anchor bolts are for additional support to prevent shifting. You can buy yours for just 4 easy payments of 24.95 +S&H!! ;-)

  62. k says:

    Actually, more than nice. It looks like a real ad! The guy carrying the v.MSHD makes it look like you have one of these already.

  63. k says:

    How do the concrete anchor bolts provide enough weight to keep shelter down and stable if there are high winds or zombies see survivors go into hiding and try to lift (assuming they’re capable of that)? Btw, what price tag would you put on this? A great idea all in all and nice presentation.

  64. Andy Christoforou says:

    This is stupid, why be by yourself when you can save humanity.

    Check mine out and you can save humanity

  65. Kitten Smooch says:

    Love the whole concept. Great for those first few crazy weeks of survival or for venturing out from more permanent settlements. Wish I had one of these now!

  66. J. Austin Fleming says:

    Mirrors attached to the undercarriage of the tornado are used as a para-scope from inside the cabin.

  67. lucus black says:

    question, how would you know when it was safe to get out?

  68. Ian In Innsbruck says:

    Great idea: mobility, sustainability (cooking/heating), blending/camouflage, protection; seems like you thought of it all.

    Especially love the armadillo, slinky, igloo concept. Genius!

  69. I like your decision to address instant safety requirements. Great result.

    (From entry Z1251)

  70. Roger Cooper says:

    Am loving the happy campers bottom right! Really innovative concept and nice presentation!

  71. The bottom comment was not me. Someone hacked into my account and is putting these weird messages around. I apologize for the inconvenience.

  72. This is so stupid. Why hide, when you can attack and kill zombies with my design:

  73. Zumba Klopenstein says:

    I don’t understand…

  74. L Anne says:

    Best one I’ve seen!

  75. J. Austin Fleming says:

    The cellular structure on the interior shell creates a compressed moment when pressure is applied along with the spiraling coiled ribs making it extremely rigid. The placement of the Vagabond is at the users discretion

  76. A. C. says:

    awesome idea

  77. Josh says:

    What happens when I zombie trips into your structure, would it collapse exposing the newly found victims?

  78. J. Austin Fleming says:

    Thanks for commenting!

    reflective surface = zombies don’t attack other zombies ;-)

  79. Great concept although I do wonder how much it would actually weigh in a backpack. The reflective surface is brilliant. Wish I’d thought of that.
