Napcabs: Your own personal pod of isolation in the middle of an airport

If you’ve ever been stuck in an airport for a 12-hour layover, you’ve probably dreamed of a nice, warm bed and some space of your own, far, far away from other travellers. Napcabs are your one-stop shop for snoozing, working, and just getting away from everything that’s wrong with airports.

These sleeping cabins are currently located at Munich Airport and are tiny (like really tiny) private rooms featuring luggage storage, a full bed, and a workspace. Each cabin also has internet access, a multimedia touch screen with a choice of videos and music, an iPod docking station, MP3/USB charging station, air conditioning, an alarm clock (very important), and flight information.

Oh, and there’s a blind on the front door window so no one sees you fall asleep with your mouth open. Guests can even adjust the lighting to suit their mood.

Charges depend on the time of day you check-in. You’ll pay €15 ($AU21) an hour from 6am until 10pm. From 10pm until 6am you’ll pay €10 ($AU14) for an hour of shuteye. The minimum charge is €30 ($AU42), so you better count on spending a couple of hours in one of these and like being cooped up in a small space.

Napcabs are currently only located in Munich but there are plans in the works to bring them to airports around the world.
