Relaxing, sleeping, having privacy at a public place? The idea that seems impossible is going to be made possible by AirPod — a unique business model based on installing state-of-the-art private “capsule style” units across all mainstream public places, for a transformed and more enhanced travel and napping experience. AirPod is currently in its pre-ICO stage and has the whitelist open. It’s a novel concept that is gaining massive attention from the blockchain community.
About AirPod’s Novel Idea
AirPod leverages upon the latest, cutting-edge technologies that let users do their tasks within a comfortable, private unit while still being present at a public or a commercial place. AirPod has incorporated features that deliver an enhanced user experience, including touch-screen monitor, Wi-Fi, sound reduction technology, air condition, mood lighting, privacy blinds smart glass and anti-stress program.
Though AirPod’s sleek and ergonomic design can be fixed into a range of surroundings, yet, the company has targeted the mainstream airport hubs first. As per the strategic analysis, the team has found this setting an ideal one. Moreover, for the expansion of this novel business model, the company will be partnering with one of the biggest companies to get assistance for the distribution within the airports all across the world.
The AirPods installed across the world will be connected over a blockchain network, which will enable general management, economic overview, and control of individual AirPod units. The platform will be powered by APOD token, which can be used as a mode of value exchange on the platform to gain exclusive memberships and to rent the AirPod units.
How Does It Enhance the User Experience?
AirPod aims to address one of the biggest challenges passengers face at the airports, and that is, waiting for hours for their flights in the terminals. The case becomes worse if the flight is expectedly late by a couple of hours, or there are extended transfers or even long check-in times. The passengers have no option but to wait in a busy, noisy terminal with no privacy.
AirPod brings to passengers a convenient and economical way to maximize and enjoy their time in these terminals, as well as other locations like shopping areas, transit hubs, and offices. The current options are unable to cater the relaxing and privacy needs. For a private space, there are uncomfortable chairs or paid lounge areas. For sleeping, a nearby hotel is to be booked. The AirPod team has carefully analyzed all the current pods available in some airports and found unsatisfactory results. These privacy pods are only meant for sleeping, with a small, dark coffin-looking shape.
AirPod offers users a comfortable and a balanced space embedded with Wi-Fi, security, comfort, privacy, and relaxation. For the first time ever, passengers will be able to read books, watch movies, listen to music, or get a sound sleep in a peaceful and private environment. The model of AirPod unit combines functionality, health, and relaxation aspects.

- Free High-speed Wi-Fi for all users

- Power sockets (USB/electricity)

- Luggage and personal belongings storage
- Air Condition & HEPA filter
