Would you sleep inside this? If you're an avid traveler, then you know how hard it is to catch a little shut eye when your plane is delayed. A new design by Russian based studio Arch Group has already started fixing this problem.

The Sleepbox is a small cabin space that can be found in airports, railroad stations, or even hostels. The idea behind the Sleepbox is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for travelers who either don't have the time to stay at a hotel or simply don't want to deal with the hassle of finding and reserving a room in one. Inside every Sleepbox are two beds, storage for one's luggage, outlets for one's laptops or phones, a reading lamp, a tv and fold out tables. Every Sleepbox also locks for added security and peace of mind.

The original concept was made out of plastic and included an automatic linen changing system however, neither of these are found in the current version but photos of the prototypes can be found below.

The Sleepbox has already been rolled out in Russia, at the Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow. They can be rented out for 15 minutes to several hours.
