@Naturepod – The Ultimate Technature Experience?

Can nature be natural to us once more?

NaturePod™ looks like a massage chair with a headset, but it is much more. Could this be the ultimate technature experience? According to Project Leader and Experiential Futurist Stuart Candy at the Situation Lab , ten minutes of Naturepod is equivalent to one hour in nature. It could even, he says, “help make nature natural to us again”.

Is this machine a revolutionary new way to deliver nature to the workplace? Its proprietary technology uses Natural Resonance Imaging (NRI) to recreate the diverse restorative and physical health gains of spending time in nature through scientifically curated imagery. Perhaps, suggests Candy, it should be made available to the first Martian colonists to remind them of their home planet.
