Bringing your partner or husband to the mall can be a real drag—especially when they just won’t stop whining about the shopping marathon you’re determined to accomplish. Fret no more, ladies, this new invention is sure to assuage your whiny man problems.
Global Harbor Mall in Shanghai, China has unveiled Husband Storage Pods, glass capsules that are fully-equipped with a gaming console (complete with classic titles) and a comfortable chair—perfectly suited for the disgruntled partner who just can’t be bothered with a little retail therapy.
While the concept specifically targets the husband market, the pods cater to all people who long for a short relief from all the shopping and those who’ve been forced against their will.
Albeit the fact that these capsules look cool, there’s one flaw that patrons just can’t seem to ignore. One user told The Paper that a five-minute session playing in a pod left him drenched in sweat. Uh-oh.
Presently, the pods are still in their trial phase and do not cost a single yuan, however, this won’t probably be the case for long because you know, capitalist corporate interest.
