When we covered these Under the Weather Pods a few years ago, I had mixed thoughts and asked Yea or Nay. But the products have proven successful in the marketplace, and inventor Rick Pescovitz expanded his product line-up with the StadiumPod.
It's not clear if this is a gag or not, but Pescovitz apparently sat in one on a commercial airline flight (source: "Personal tents for airplane passengers to avoid coronavirus") and drew no undue attention. "The flight attendant happily took his photo and…the man who sat next to him didn't even bat an eye."
I have two questions:
1. Do you folks reckon this will catch on? And,
2. If someone coughs or sneezes coronavirus germs into the cabin, wouldn't they just settle on the outside of the tent, which you would eventually handle when you got out of it and folded it up?
