Tubicle

Efficiency Cubicle

An office cubicle much like the capsule hotels from Japan. Rest on your back while you work, your adjustable computer screen is above your head and your keyboard follows the rules of ergonomics by being split in half in order to rest comfortably under each hand by your side.

Drinks fit in nearby cup holders and you get a long drinking straw to access your beverage.

This feature costs extra but the center rest area is motorized so you can push a button and it will eject you (slowly) from the capsule making exiting and entering as easy as getting on or off a bench.

Great for working in space, call centers, humans on call, mobile offices, humans with bad backs, anyone scheduled with too few hours between their shifts yet still needing rest and workaholics.

       I'd much rather have my keyboard 50 feet from my mouse, and my files in a whole other building. Such as I would have to be more active and fit to do my job.

       Fishbone for advocating drinking while lying down, but the sheer lunacy of the idea overwhelms that with croissants. I think I'll get some for my staff...

       With the general bullet-shape of the chambers could be used to make downsizing more...expedient.
