AirPod - Your Privacy Capsule

Have you ever been stuck at the airport, waiting for your next flight with nothing to do and nowhere to hideaway? Over 400 million passengers in air transit per year are facing the same problems - lack of privacy, uncomfortable seats, and no place to relax. These problems are most obvious at the airports, but they also occur at many other places - train and bus stations, hospitals, fairs and venues, offices, business centres, shopping centres, universities, hotels, etc.

Today, air passengers do not have a private place to retreat and get a rest. They can either sit in uncomfortable chairs, book expensive lounges (still no complete privacy) or book a hotel room (which is inconvenient if the waiting time is less than 12 hours). Some of the airports are offering sleeping pods, but currently available products do not offer expanded functionality that would fit the needs of air passengers.

AirPod's vision is to provide people with a private place in the hectic crowded world. We are creating a product by implementing the advantages of high technology with a purpose to serve people and their well-being.
