Its foamy design structure enables the customer to transform it easily. It can quickly become a small tent or an office table that you can work on it with your laptop or even a cave to hide in. Sharkman's ergonomic design offers a flexible structure for any body type to fit into it to cozy up. According to Zhao, Sharkman's experimental design relies on an extensive research process involving ergonomic engineering.

Fold and attach

You can carry your own office chair or a portable working place anywhere. The only thing you have to do is  folding and attaching the pieces to each other. If you are not in the mood to work, you simply fold Sharkman into a big egg shaped cozy cave while you're watching the sky or turn it into a tent just to lay down in it.
