I’ve wanted one of these since I was a little kid. Say you’re going on a long trip. You’d pack it full of your stuff, climb in, and wait for the pod-taxi to take you to the airport where a machine would load you into a plane full of pods. Layover? No problem. Your pod would automatically de-plane and board the next plane. Cheaper to take the bus? No problem there either! You’d be loaded into the pod-bus just the same.
Of course, you could step out from time to time to get a breath of fresh air, do some duty-free shopping, or otherwise interact with the locals. And if you were feeling flush (pun intended, wait for it…), you might even spring for the version with the built-in toilet. The mega-deluxe version would be twice as big, with space for two … or a full-size lay-down bed.
Traveling with kids? No problem. Stick them in their own pod, and use the built-in two-way video screen to keep an eye on them. And if they make a mess, you could just hose down the interior to wash away the Cheerios, Cheese-doodles, and barf.
What do you think - are you with me?
Exchanging knowing glances with the other person at the Starbucks rocking a Surface Pro. Or maybe it’s just that the other person is a creep. Or maybe that’s me.
