People are freaking out over this brand-new invention that is actually just a tent

Have you heard of the “Pause Pod?” Well, if you haven’t, have I got a pitch for you. It’s a collapsable structure that makes a cube-like space–covered by fabric–and people can crawl in and out of it. Insider posted a video about the contraption, which depicted people climbing into the pod, zipping it up, sitting down, and sometimes lying down. Good wholesome pod fun.

Yes, it is essentially a tent. A tent called a “pod.” And the “pod” has leg holes at the bottom so people can fully lie down and sleep in it. So I guess it’s a tent with pants.

Needless to say, Twitter is having fun:

This brings up flashbacks of when Lyft announced its “Shuttle” service, which was essentially a bus. Technology folks seem to enjoy unknowingly reinventing the wheel by ignoring it.

It’s unclear whether Insider was pitched the “pause pod” or if it just found the object on Indiegogo. Either way, the site sure made a great informercial for it.
