Don't Bother Me: The Nutshell Personal Isolation Pod

December 5, 2014


Kit-Kat is not amused.

This is the nutshell personal isolation pod invented by SVA Product of Design student Eden Lew, who apparently lives in a world where there's no fear of ever being robbed and/or stabbed.

As a student I'm always looking for the quickest meal to avoid stopping my workflow. I decided that if I'm going to spend five minutes or less eating a lunch, then I might as well use that five minutes to take a mental break.Thus the Nutshell was created to block out distractions and to focus on eating and thinking.

You know what I do when I need to take a mental break at work? Put a black trashbag over my head. It's a lot like sensory deprivation, because eventually I start to get lightheaded and my mind begins to wander. Then? CLARITY. "No, that's you about to die." IT'S CLARITY. I even saw a light once before a concerned coworker came and tore the bag off my head. Dammit Jeff, I don't judge how you spend your lunch breaks.

Keep going for a couple more pics.



Thanks to Carlos, who just puts his dead on his desk and tapes a 'DISTURB AND DIE' note to his back. My God what I would give to replace that with a 'KICK ME'.
