Want to relax, instead of going in a spa, why don't you get yourself a “Transport”. The Transport designed by Alberto Frias is an egg-shaped fiberglass pod equipped with speakers and an array of LED harmonized to music, a waterbed and a pillow to give you a comfortable ambiance to rest. The price of this luxury pod is offered for around $10,000.

Implications - Popular interpretations of futuristic resting spots are often depicted as pods. Science fiction movies have mostly displayed beds as these miniature circumferences that people would sleep in. This has inspired brands to come up with similar concepts that can be applied in the modern world. Sleek futuristic designs inspired by sci-fi flicks continue to have a dominant influence on what consumers want and design concepts that companies are trying to adopt.
