London Olympics data center installs space age sleeping pods

The challenge of the late night programmer and overnight tech support worker has always been sleep and how to get it. Now a London-based firm has teamed up with a local data center to show us what may be the future of geek power naps.

Interxion, one of the companies providing data center services for the upcoming London Olympics, has decided to install futuristic sleeping pods next to its servers so workers can be on call around the clock. The units were created by PodTime and combine the convenience of Japan's capsule hotels with the portability of the Metronaps office units. You can see more of the PodTime sleeping chambers in the video below.
