Delayed flights聽could soon become a whole lot more bearable! Rather than being forced to whiling away the hours聽in a crowded gate area with nothing to do, European travelers聽may be聽taking a snooze in an enclosed聽pod before long, complete with Netflix and Wi-Fi instead 鈥 yes, really!

The sleek, capsule-like contraptions聽are called聽AirPODs, and, according to Travel + Leisure, the devices, dreamt up by two Slovenian businessmen, Mihael Meolic and Grega Mrgole and currently in beta testing, will reportedly be part of a commercial trial in UK airports later this year.

For the rough equivalent of $18 per hour, travelers聽will be able to rent out a聽design-forward聽pod (which look like聽the giant egg Lady Gaga rode in at the 2011 Grammys) close to boarding gates with reservations made via an app.聽With plenty of room for luggage and a plush聽chair聽 for napping, it鈥檚 the perfect spot for a quick聽refresher. Alternately, it can also be used to get ish done, thanks to the small desk that聽serves as a handy聽workspace with its Internet connection, TV, Netflix account, and noise reduction properties,聽just to name a few.

Guests will also be treated to A/C,聽timely flight updates, and an alarm聽that ensures you don鈥檛 miss your flight in the comfort of the pod.

If all goes well, the sky鈥檚 the limit for the rest of the world, with T+L noting that their success could be replicated around the globe. *Fingers crossed!*
