Be transported to a new world



Making a living is tough, and despite the ever growing list of billionaires that we read about each year on Forbes, there are more people who are living in perpetual debt and face a whole lot of stress just trying to pay off the monthly bills and putting three square meals on the table for the family each day. Designer Alberto Frias developed the Transport, an egg-shaped vessel made from fiberglass that is outfitted with a couple of subwoofer speakers and an array of LEDs to provide the working class with a means of escape from the stress-filled world in which we live and work in.

The Transport looks like what some would call a personal miniature planetarium, featuring a central cushion for you to lie back and throw away the cares of the world if but for a moment. Flickering bright lights will be display in harmony to the music played, and Mr. Frias hopes that will encourage the occupant to feel one with the cosmos.

I don’t know about you, but forking out at least $10,000 to get rid of stress sounds ridiculous to me. I’d rather use that money and pick up a few pints of Guiness, feeling secure in the knowledge that I don’t have a $10,000 loan staring at me in the face. Still, if you’re adamant on picking one up due to the pressures in your life, go ahead and give Mr. Frias a tingle. With all the money he’s getting from selling off the Transport, no wonder he’s grinning from ear to ear – I doubt that oneness with the cosmos of his is due to spending time in the Transport.
