Yesterday, Insider tweeted out a video featuring the invention, which is currently selling for half price at $99 on Indiegogo.



One of the inventors for Pause Pod told BuzzFeed News that he finds the comments "quite amusing."

"Our main intention with the project is to shine a light on today’s stressful society and remind people to take their time to relax and recharge in order to live a happy life, no matter how you do it," he said. "We're well aware that it's not suitable for everyone, and that's perfectly fine."

He added that the Pause Pod is indeed a version of a tent, and that the inventors never said otherwise.

He also said that the company intends to give Pause Pods to "schools and organisations that can find a use for them beyond relaxing, for example, homeless people and people with autism."
