Sleeping Pods in Airports

Sleeping Box–great forward thinking by Arch Group.  I remember a nine hour layover I had in Washington-Dulles once.  It was awful.  No one wants to sleep in those airport chairs.  You’re trying to sleep, but having to keep one eye open, while holding onto your belonging hoping someone doesn’t just come by and pick something up for their own charity. Really, you don’t get to sleep at all.

However, does anyone else foresee a problem here?  How will they monitor these things? What is to keep two people who are very attracted to one another from jumping in there for a couple of hours? I can just see how this is going to go. A child walks by with his mother and asks, Mom, what’s that noise?  I suppose time will tell.
