As anyone who’s ever had their flight delayed or been stuck with a 16-hour layover knows, traveling is exhausting. As it stands right now, the only way to get some rest without leaving the airport is to either sleep on the floor, rent a pay-by-the-hour hotel room, or pay for access to an expensive VIP lounge — but all of that is about to change.
Turning Waiting Into an Experience
The people behind AirPod have a simple mission: to provide a unit which improves the traveling experience by allowing customers to relax, work, sleep, and have fun in their own, completely private space — without ever having to leave the airport or rent an expensive hotel room.
To achieve this vision, the project’s team has created AirPod Sleeping Pods — brand new, state-of-the-art products which both meet the needs of travelers and allows is viable in for a variety of different public spaces, including but not limited to airports, hotels, railways, bus stations, shopping centers, offices, and anywhere people may want to work or relax in privacy.
The AirPods themselves are set to offer travelers a balanced, comfortable and affordable space, complete with complimentary WiFi. The capsules are designed to ensure privacy, with a focus on health, relaxation, and functionality. The design team has utilized the latest research in ergonomics, light, sensory, and vision — providing a comprehensive solution to those exhausted by the act of traveling.
Additionally, AirPods have integrated anti-stress technology — based on scientific studies of scents, sounds, and colors — which serves to both relax and revitalize weary travelers by stimulating cognitive recognition in an individual’s brain.
Users will be able to take advantage of 15-minute revitalization treatments which scientifically target the three most important senses — smell, vision, and hearing — and monitors each with a special biofeedback device.
Some additional features integrated into AirPods will be complimentary access to Amazon Fire TV, internet booking via iOS and Android, USB/electric power sockets, a work desk, storage for luggage and personal belongings, air conditioning with HEPA filters, an alarm clock, flight status information, a high-quality seat with converts into a bed, and an LED-system which self-disinfects.
A Legitimate ICO and Profit-Sharing Opportunity
While there is no shortage of initial coin offerings (ICOs) out there for investors to choose from, AirPod’s ICO offers the unique opportunity to participate in an investment opportunity which is actually backed by a real business.
AirPods will be powered by APOD utility tokens, which will be used to fund AirPod units in airports — in addition to future units to be established in other public spaces. In the second phase of the AirPod rollout, APOD Tokens will represent the ability to actually use/rent the AirPod units, as well as participate in the AirPod Sponsorship Program.
As the number of installed AirPods increases, more users will be generated. This, in turn, will increase the frequency of APOD Token buyback from exchanges and effectively reposition them at a higher price — which will naturally increase the price of APOD Token.
Those who contribute to the ICO will also be able to enter into a profit-sharing relationship by converting APOD tokens to a “Sponsorship Program” through a decentralized application (DApp) platform.
