Regus Rolls Out Workboxes - Videoconferencing-Equipped Work Pods for Airports & Public Spaces
The international workspace-rental firm Regus wants to make it easier for businesspeople to get work done on the go. Its work pods could offer them an option that's way more attractive--and private--than the nearest coffee shop.
Working in hotel lobbies can be inspiring, and logging on at Starbucks certainly hasn't lost its luster. That said, sometimes what you really need when you're out of town is an honest-to-gosh office.
That's the thinking behind the new Workbox concept by Regus, a company known for its office space rental facilities. The idea: offering all the comforts of a real office in a small space.
The concept puts many office conveniences--including a place to plug in and a spot to print--in places like shopping malls and hotels. The Workbox itself, which looks a bit like a pod, is designed to give users privacy. As the video above shows, the goal is to allow people to work on the go without some of the usual downsides. The box uses acoustic insulation to ensure that road warriors have quiet, and the space is equipped to allow videoconferencing and listening to music privately.
