From the information I was able to gather on this online this concept vehicle was created by an aftermarket developer in Nagano, Japan. But by now it might even be available in some areas of the world.
The shell extends the length and height of the Prius vehicle and allows you to sleep two people in the first level and another two people in the loft. There may even be room to create a convertible table/bed system as seen in many RVs.
It was unveiled at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon. Photo credit unknown. Original post seen here.

“New design for Casual Turtle Campers, the Half Shell is a slimmed down, non-cabover, slide-in truck camper/sleeper that also functions as a traditional topper/cargo hauler. This particular model is designed to best fit a Ford Ranger or first generation Toyota Tacoma/Nissan Frontier, though will fit other pickups as well. It weighs in at 455 lbs, and features a removable queen size bed platform.”
Really a neat little camper design, and it can be modified to fit any pickup truck.
