Germany installs homeless sleeping pods

The Germany town of Ulm has started installing sleeping pods for homeless people.

A team of six design businesses have developed the products. They first came up with the idea for the sleeping capsules back in 2018.

The first pods were tested outside last winter. However, some changes have been made to the design since then.

The pods are known as Ulster Nests. They are made from wood and steel and are both windproof and waterproof. They’re designed to keep up to two people protected from the elements, including rain, frost and humidity.

However, the creators have stressed that the capsules aren’t an alternative to staying in proper overnight accommodation, especially as the city of Ulm can reach very low temperatures.

The sleep pods have also been fitted with solar panels and they even come complete with enough room to house users’ belongings.

They’ve been fitted with sensors which can monitor temperature, humidity, smoke and carbon dioxide levels.
