USA Needs This!


If this comes to the US it’s over for me. Full hibernation mode. You couldn’t tell me nothing. We do have sleep areas in the States but they are NOTHING like this, its more like a kindergarten “nap-time” set up. Bitch I’m grown, give me a room and some privacy.

Originally conceptualized in 2009. Russian architects Arch Group have completed the first of their tiny hotel rooms for napping at airports. The Sleepbox unit at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport contains two beds and can be rented for between 30 minutes and several hours. Sleepbox, a personal, rentable, portable box with a bed and outlets to juice up your gadgets. It is constructed from ash-veneered MDF, although future units could instead be made from metal or glass-reinforced plastic. It is the perfect private rest stop for any airport, features include up to three beds, sockets for charging up gadgets, luggage storage space under the bed, LED-reading lamps, electric-driven blinds, Wi-Fi, safety deposit box and even a touchscreen TV.
Available options include:
Matted film on windows with changing transparency
Mood lighting – LED lamps with changing light colors
Built-in media block (TV, touch-screen monitor)
Wi-Fi router
Alarm, intercom
Safe deposit box
