Honorable Mention: Nimbus – Adventure Awaits


Honorable Mention: Nimbus – Adventure Awaits


Our 24/7 fixation with connection and work disrupts our circadian rhythm, disconnecting us from the natural rhythm of nature. For city dwellers, this disconnection puts them at greater risk of stress and mental health disorders. Natural experiences improve psychological distress, and ease of access to the outdoors can help break a monotonous cycle. Nimbus is an all in one service that helps working professionals escape the city’s bounds effortlessly, securely and sustainably. The Nimbus ecosystem includes a mobile app, pod, and in-pod panel. The app enables city dwellers to explore uplifting experiences within a two hour radius. The autonomous, electric, and sustainably sourced Nimbus pod arrives at the desired location to pick them up. The in-pod panel enhances their journey by providing guided information, while advocating for responsible use of the land they camp upon. Nimbus aims to make camping more accessible, and redefines the RV experience for the future.
