GoSleep pods have Finnish design that features sliding shade that isolates the customer from noise, light and crowds. This is, in fact, a compact chair that could be transformed into flat bed, providing the customer with top privacy level when used. The company plans to improve the sleeping pod by providing access to the internet, secure storage for luggage will be included, and the customer will be able to charge devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, tablet, etc. The client could use GoSleep for 12.25$ per hour. Passengers can pay via a credit card.
