The Pause Pod is a product aimed at bringing some privacy to every day life, but the one-person tent is getting roasted online.
The internet is the home for stupid inventions, but sometimes, they go beyond stupid.
The Pause Pod was developed thanks to funding from a successful KickStarter. Now, you can purchase your own Pause Pod through IndieGoGo for about a hundred bucks. The Pause Pod pops up in seconds, and offers you a quiet, dark place to sit, meditate or nap!
I guess the Pause Pod is great if your office doesn't have a bathroom or an exit.
The Pause Pod also has an extendable pouch so you can lie down. Great! I can finally get some privacy in my own bedroom!
There's even tablet holder so you don't have to be bored during your cry for help. Okay, I'm kidding. For a one-person tent, the Pause Pod seems kind of cool!
Out in nature, it makes a great instant shelter that's easy to carry. But, using it inside? I understand wanting to have some privacy at work, but… how much privacy can you get when you're inside a small tent in the middle of a room?
I guess a nylon tent is much cheaper than cubicles. Like so many useless inventions before it, the Pause Pod is getting roasted on social media.
What do you think of the Pause Pod? Is it a dumb tent, or is it the miracle people-shield that you've been looking for? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
