Two Tufts engineering grads, Mike Brown, E10, and Ryan Stolp, E10, have created the Alpine Hammock, a one-man shelter used when traveling in the mountains. When these two nature lovers had trouble finding a lightweight but weather-resistant shelter that was also comfortable, they ventured out and made their own.
Mike and Ryan are trying to fund the project using Kickstarter, an all-or-nothing funding method that focuses on creative projects. They hope to raise $40,000 by Thursday, August 30.
