In the ’70s these would have been known as oil rig survival pods. Nowadays they’re hotel suites. The sometimes floating, sometimes land-based rooms were at one point something people never wanted to have to climb into. Of course, taking out the issue of basic survival and replacing it with modern amenities alleviates many concerns.
While the pods were very basic to start off with, they now offer a range of comforts, one even decked out as a fancy Bond-esque themed room, from the ’70s era, predictably à la The Spy Who Loved Me.
