“Sleepbox”, rent it by the hour for a quick nap at the airport, etc.

We’ve seen a few versions of this over the years but nothing much ever comes of them. They seem like a brilliant idea, until you consider ’em in the Las Vegas airport with cats passed out and barf everywhere. The official info is below:

“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.”
