Energypod. Fatigue management.

we were alerted that there are energypods on google’s campus. good for them.

above: the energypod. below: a description from the producer’s web site:

Fatigue control for the workplace! Looking like something out of science fiction, the MetroNaps EnergyPod actually harnesses science and NASA technology to create a space within a space.

Occupying the same amount of room as a sofa, the EnergyPod creates a cocoon from outside noise and distractions. Occupants are reclined into the optimal napping position to promote blood circulation and reduce pressure on the lower back and ambient sounds help nappers drift into light sleep. At the timer’s expiration, the occupant is gently woken with a combination of lighting and vibration.

Key Features & Benefits
* Room within a room
* Inbuilt Bose sound system
* Contemporary design
* Zero gravity technology







above: another fatigue management product from metronap is the lightweight and easily transportable “napshell.”
note: however, if you’re working for a less evolved company or not putting in 16 hour days…





above: fits easily in your desk drawer. put glasses on, crack your office door ever so slightly, prop large document on copyholder device in front of you.


Producer: metronaps ( energypod )
