Folded cardboard, bed

The itbed is made from 7 mm thick cardboard that is folded like an accordion. In one step the itbed can be collapsed into an easily portable bundle... The zigzag profile of the itbed, reminiscent of a house of cards, is stabilized from head to foot by two lengths of webbing.

The itbed is also 370 euro and up, so make one yourself.

We're going to Chicago this weekend. My wife is getting together with a gaggle of girls. Elsa (almost two, usually chill, recently clingy, loves trucks, eats well) and I will be trolling for good Indian food and something out of the ordinary. Any last-minute suggestions for places to see and things to do? All are welcome and greatly appreciated.
