Germany installs sleeping pods for homeless

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A German city has installed a number of pods for homeless people to sleep in

Officials in Ulm, about 75 miles west of Munich, installed the units, known as 'Ulmer Nest', on 8 January, to give shelter to rough sleepers during the cold winter months.

A spokesperson for the city said the pods, which are made out of wood and steel, had been placed in parks and other areas.

The beds have been fitted with thermal insulation to protect the homeless from the wind, cold, and humidity. They are also large enough for two people to use.

There are no cameras, sensors are activated when they are in use.

I thought the same thing. It's almost got a  kind of space-age/sci-fi feel to them. Good for Ulm.
