Urban life has its benefits, but it does come with lots of downsides. We must cope with the increased noise, but there’s a solution for that problem. Also, the lack of any private space while we are at work, or just while resting on our favorite park bench (you probably experienced the scene where you sit on an empty bench, start relaxing while eating your sandwich only to have your peace and quiet ruined when some person comes and sits next to you). The lack of private space can be disastrous is your job is stress-heavy. We need a time just for ourselves even while working, but the modern offices often come with see-through glass walls, along with multiple workstations stuffed inside a small area. One solution is to put on a sleep mask along with some noise-cancelling earbuds and try resting for a couple of minutes. The other solution is way better, and it comes in the form of Pause Pod, your private space that can be used anywhere.
Pause Pod looks like a miniature tent, but it is actually a mobile private pod. You can pop it up in seconds, lay down inside it, and start relaxing, completely separated from all external stimuli. Pause Pod features a small compartment for your legs that can be pulled up from the base of the pod so you can even take a power nap during lunch break, allowing you to fill up batteries without worrying someone will enter your office, destroying your peace and quiet.
Aside from being used on work, Pause Pod can be used practically anywhere. It comes with a handy carrying bag so you can take it with you every day. Instead of your state of peace being ruined by a stranger sitting on your favorite park bench, you can just set up your Pause Pod, and enjoy the day without anyone disturbing your peace.
Pause Pod is great for houses, especially if you live in a small apartment where you can’t just lock inside a room and meditate. Instead, just take your pod and rest while the children play. The pod is great for meditation since it locks you up, it places you in your own private place, allowing to fully concentrate on meditation instead focusing on the noise your neighbor makes when trying to beat their bench press record.
Pause Pod is great for granting you a moment of peace to cope with stress or to just rest for a while, but the thing is also great for reading, watching movies, and daydreaming. It features three add-ons: Mini Pause is a combination of earplugs and sleep mask making you cut out from the outside world; Star Sky lights up the inside of Pause Pod with a serene image of the night sky; the third add-on is Pause Cinema, which is basically a universal tablet mount allowing you to watch movies and TV shows while chilling in your Pause Pod.
This awesome piece of private space can be yours for $125 (the package includes Pause Pod along with 1 add-on), but if you are super fast you can get it for just $99 (there are just a couple of early bird spots left). You can buy it on IndieGoGo; the project managed to gather enough funds and it is available for pre-order with the expected shipping starting in October 2017.
