Come to France, stay in a bubble

by Mark R

Some of you might remember when we covered that story about the Igloo Village in Finland, which allows guests to stay in glass igloos while observing the northern lights.

A French designer named Stephane Dumas came up with a similar model with these bubble pods for observing the stars at night. Thanks to an airlock at the entrance and a quiet pump that creates pressure, these rooms always keep their bubble shape.

There is a video after the jump if you want to see what one of these rooms look like. They have that white look of sixties and seventies science fiction films, and the transparent ceiling does look serene. Just to let you know, these rooms are made of recycled plastic.

I like the look of the room from the video, but I wish it was more private. Not only can everyone see what you are doing in the bubble, but there is a toilet in the room that’s only a few feet from the bed. For couples, this could be a stay that is a little too intimate.

My Source states that one night’s stay is $700, but I hope that this price includes renting the park for the night. The video says it is about $283.
