The SLEEPBOX: Now middle class people can sleep in a box (9 photos)

Taking the next step in rest and space efficiency, Russia’s Arch Group designed the SLEEPBOX.

The days of climbing in tiny honeycomb pods (caskets) to catch some Zzz's in Tokyo, Russia's Arch Group designed the SLEEPBOX for travelers who need a quick, inexpensive recharge. SLEEPBOX is intended primarily to perform one main function - to enable a person to sleep peacefully. The self-contained mini hotel rooms are equipped with a bed, table, HD TV and Wi-Fi. Expect to see the SLEEPBOX in London, Amsterdam, New York, and eventually all across Europe.

(there is no audio for some reason, but I hummed the tune to Chip-N-Dale Rescue Rangers while watching and it didn’t fit very well)

    You're right, I'll try Talespin.

      Try using the Saved by the Bell theme. I also enjoyed it with either Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Scooby Doo theme song.

      For added effect sing it out loud in the office.

    • ZapTheSheep

      Gummy Bear theme song worked very well, just had to do it twice.

      Fraggle Rock!!!!

        I will admit… after reading that I had to youtube the Fraggle Rock song, I had forgotten the tune. Now I have you to thank for having that song stuck in my head the rest of the day.

  • FLHomesteader

    :And as an additional note… these things look bigger than my apartment.

  • Stir

    I hope they hose these down in between uses!

  • fdallas

    You know that within a few weeks they will become "pods for tricks" by the local prostitutes…

    • ???

      Can't wait till these come to the US Wooohooo!! whores!

      • Amber

        Most of the people in the US are too fat for these things

        • Hobo

          have you ever been to the US, you fucking dolt?

  • saltygary

    I can totally see the airlines buying a bunch of these and then have higher % of flights canceled which forces people to use them and to make more money.

    Conspiracy theory aside, these are pretty damn cool and could see using them in certain travel situations.

  • Skedaddle

    Bunk beds? Here's hoping your "boxmate" doesn't fart…..:x

    • northerner

      Depends on how good looking she is…

  • Scott

    It's way better than laying sprawled out on the terminal floor and getting a sleep boner for everyone to see.

    • stafferty

      If I have to be uncomfortable, everyone has to be uncomfortable. Plus, it makes that walk to Dunkin Donuts the next morning a lot funnier.

  • randasaur

    These would be amazing… if people weren't disgusting. Can I get a can of Lysol, a roll of paper towels and some disposable plastic sheets to go with it? Still… I've had some layovers where these would have been quite handy, even if I mostly just used it for a quick cry and a few screamed obscenities.

    • Amber

      I agree, especially with the bedbug problem and remember that not everyone wears deodorant, practices good hygiene and what about those drunk people who get refused from boarding. It would be nice to stick them in one of these to sleep it off, but you would have to worry about them puling or peeing in there.

  • Atomicmoose

    It's spelled "Sleepbox", but its pronounced "Sexbox".

  • Snicker

    I imagine those getting really gross really fast.

    • northerner

      One would assume a certain degree (high…) of regular maintenance applied to them. Local health regs, etc.

  • rawnoyz

    is there no sex in the sleep box room? coz now i can have quickies on the go!

  • fzero

    This is the lazy, adult version of a pillow fort. That being said, I want one in my loft.

  • scifi nerd

    I'm a nerd, but this reminds me of The Fifth Element. D:

  • rawnoyz

    they should make it unbalanced in a way so that if there is any sex goin on, the thing rocks back and forth or somethin and makes it obvious outside and makes loud noises.. but i dont think ppl would care now a days, but maybe it would minimize the sex.

  • SreyaNotfilc


  • equalizermax

    Better than my apartment

    • FLHomesteader

      Aye, I feel the same way… see…. scroll up!

  • HellHath NoFury

    Can I just put one in the back of a truck and drag it up to the lake?

    • Lisa Martin

      That's what I was thinking. Hunting camp! Use solar panels for the roof. Oh heck yeah.

  • Matt

    I can imagine how many people will be having sex in those. Drag your prostitute into a sleep box and get a quick blow J

  • Pete Ribaudo

    how would they make you leave after ur time was up? could see bumbs postin up in there

  • Its-a me, Mario

    Next thing you know, besides preaching abstinence we are gonna hear him claim he is not a witch.

  • Greg

    Awesome idea. Practically, might not work so well. They better sell disposable pillows & sheets and have someone clean that out after every use. On a side note, I would drag this thing around everywhere I go.

  • Coldzilla

    only if theres a fire hose around that I can use first

  • northerner

    Yeah, hadn't thought of that. There'd have to be tough sound insulation and a rare common courtesy of fellow travelers to NOT bang on the side. And the potty factor. You'd have to have a security code or card entrance to be able to leave to take a crap and come back to secured belongings. Lots of ifs.

  • Sean

    Yes, here comes a new wave of voyeur porn.

  • Lemmiwinks

    More like a jack in the box for horny businessmen.
