Flying used to be glamorous. It was all cocktails in the air, sharp suits, beautiful flight attendants and ‘welcome to sunny California’. These days? Total nightmare.
No matter how exciting your eventual destination, you still have to deal with cramped conditions, screaming babies and mind-numbing stopovers. The Sleepbox is here to help.
Developed by a Russian company, these (2m x 1.4m x 2.3m) boxes are like a Westernised version of Japan’s coffin hotels. Inside you’ll find a bed, baggage storage area and all the wireless wi-fi and power sockets you could ever hope for. Also, tasteful faux wooden veneer. You can hire a Sleepbox out for 15 minutes or several hours, and once those blinds are closed you can do whatever the hell you want… except that, and that, and, oh God! please
don’t do that.
For serious though, being stuck at an airport sucks. Having your own Sleepbox to hide in makes the whole ordeal a whole lot less sucky. And if you get really bored you can regress to your childhood and pretend you have the world’s best ‘cubby house’. That used to be a thing, right?
PS. It's soundproof.
