Thanks to Sleepbox, gone are the days of sleeping on a metal chair in an airport food court between flights. The Sleepbox is essentially what it sounds like: a pod just wide enough for a bed and a drop-down desk. The first of these pods, from Arch Group, has been installed in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, and can be rented for as little as thirty minutes up to a few hours. Arch Group envisions Sleepbox as a modern urban staple, and plans to set them up in other airports, as well as railroad stations, expo centers, large public shopping spaces, etc.
Sleepbox is equipped with an LED reading light and electrical outlets for users to charge their gadgets as well as WiFi capabilities. For maximum time-efficiency, not to mention hygiene, the bed contains a mechanism that automatically changes the linens after each guest checks out.
