Cool looking, and fits in within the regular seating/waiting areas of the airport, with internet access to come. What could go wrong?

Abu Dhabi Airports Company has launched “GoSleep” sleeping pods at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH)…it is a chair that converts into a private flat bed. Ten sleeping pods have now been installed in Terminal 3 and in the Al Dhabi Lounge in Terminal 1 at Abu Dhabi International Airport, with a further 35 on order for installation later this year.

The stylish, Finnish designed sleeping pods…feature a partial or fully enclosed sliding shade that isolates the customer from noise, light and crowds.  After an initial launch phase, the chairs will be upgraded to include Internet access, will include secure storage for luggage and other valuables, and will allow customers to charge their laptops, mobile telephones, and other electronic devices.  Passengers will be able to use the chairs at a rate of AED 45/hour (about $12) using a credit card.
