Need a shopping break? Las Vegas mall has a place to nap

We’ve all been there—you’re stranded at the mall with a friend or family member, your feet are tired and your body hurts. If only you had somewhere to nap. At the Fashion Show mall, now you do.

The mall is one of two locations in the world with Napin Pods—a futuristic vending machine for people who need a break. Co-founder Alec Salemon originally came up with the idea for Napin Pods—designed and manufactured in LA—to help exhausted travelers recharge.

Mall pods are located on the first floor near the guest services desk in front of Macy’s and in front of Neiman Marcus, and are available in hourlong increments to anyone with a credit card. Inside, the climate-controlled mini-lounge features a seating area designed for one person, black out shades, an LED reading light, USB outlets, headphone ports, a touch-screen monitor and a fold-down work table.
