These Airport Pods Simulate the Weather At Your Destination

If you’re headed off on vacation, you’re probably flying somewhere warm. If it’s business travel, you might not be so lucky. So the Arland airport in Stockholm, Sweden, has installed three climate-controlled rooms that let travelers experience the weather of the city they’re heading to.

Sure, it’s a publicity stunt by the airport to help brag about all the worldwide destinations it serves, but the rooms do have a practical application. Using heaters, air conditioners, fans, misters, and even audio-visual aides, you can get a good feel of what the conditions will be like at your destination at the current time.


So if it’s freezing, and you forgot to pack a sweater, you can hit up the duty-free store before boarding. If it’s pouring down rain, you can ensure there’s an umbrella at the ready in your carry-on for when you arrive. And if the air conditioning at your gate is too intense, you can just tell one of the rooms you’re headed to Hawaii, and then take a few minutes to warm up.
