Podtime Lets Office Workers Take Lunchtime Naps

Ever wish you could dip out of your cubicle for a hour and take a nap? Thanks to John Gray and his company Podtime, London office workers can do just that. 

A former finance worker with a background in engineering, Gray started Podtime to provide people working in high-stress office jobs with a temporary place of solace during their workday. 

Based in the City of London, Podtime has a number of one-person sleeping pods that workers can rent for 30 minutes (£5.99) or an hour (£9.99). To help with relaxation the company also provides earplugs.

While Gray says some London banks have inquired about acquiring some pods for their offices, there's no word on whether he plans to extend his business to the U.S. Better keep that pillow at your desk for a bit longer.
