Welcome to TEDS

CEO Message

My name is Ted Ko. I am a father of three children and the founder of TEDS. During my life, I have always enjoyed camping. In my late 30s, I came across some personally difficult times, and things were not working out. I took that time to spend more time with my family, and we decided to spend some time camping across New Zealand. We covered most parts of the country camping out in various types of rooftop tents. Spending time out in nature with loved ones truly helped me look back on myself and mentally secure myself to think and plan out my next steps. I wanted to share the experience and the feelings I had felt during camping with as many people as possible. After returning, I gained experience in the industry as a technical designer and soon started drafting my own original rooftop tent design. TEDS is now proud to present “TEDPoP” : The World’s First Dual Expandable Hardshell Rooftop Pop-Up Tent that will not only give you a great camping experience but also allow you to continue connecting and bonding with your loved ones wherever you go. We have many plans and products coming up, and your support will help us bring them to life. Your support in bringing this project to life means more than anything to us, and we wholeheartedly believe that we will be able to share the experience and the feelings that we have felt and let you keep fulfilling your expedition dream.

Our First Product

TEDPoP Rooftop Tent

What we want to create and provide is an unforgettable experience for everybody who is interested in camping and overlanding.

We spent months looking into various rooftop tents that are out in the market, especially on what kind of improvements can be made for a better user experience. Our conclusion is that common issues such as condensation, comfortability can be improved though better materials, improved designing and also able to lower the lost by cutting out all unnecessary costs. Ultimately, we are confident that we can provide everyone who not only enjoys camping and overlanding, but has interest in outdoor activities the best camping experience through our product.

The starting point for this Kickstarter is not limited to 'TEDPoP' rooftop tent, but will be the beginning of a full line-up of products that are currently in design.

Our team is totally committed for this Kickstarter campaign. We’ve spent nights and days working on this project, and tested every possibility to deliver the best product in your hand. With the final prototype, we made sure everything is on perfect track for mass production. Now, we are ready to manufacture and ship them out to you.
