Pod Train Inspired by those Japanese capsule hotels, the JIYUKŪKAN high speed rail system packs personal pod modules in which travelers can sleep, relax or just hang out on the 500-800 mile journey. Like the capsule hotels, each train packs a number of showers so users are well-rested and fresh-faced when they arrive at their destination. Passengers can get on with their day upon arriving without the lag feeling of lost time!
This is only a projection of a Eurostar train running between Paris and London as designed by Christopher Jenner, but we think it sounds amazing: “The carriage finished in hardwood, brushed Brass and Carbon fibre illustrates a hybrid of the golden age and the new. Individual accommodation in single seats provides essential armrest services (air, power, connection) and retractable privacy, while large screen windows open a view to the world flying by.”
