A city in Germany has created pods for homeless people to sleep in during the winter months.
The innovative pods are reportedly popping up all over the city of Ulm in key locations that homeless people go to. Temperatures often drop below freezing in Ulm, so the pods could prove life saving for those sleeping on the streets.
Made of steel and wood, the pods are insulted and waterproof, and recently underwent upgrades so that they have solar panels and communication services in them.
According to EuroWeekly News, the pods have an independent web connection, meaning when they’re occupied it sends an alert to a charity that then checks the pods and keeps them clean. The charity then, where possible, contacts the person who occupied the pod and asks them if they’re in need of any help.Despite having web connection, there are no cameras inside the sleeping space.
