Kindly deposit your bored spouse here, madam.
The Global Harbor Mall in Shanghai, China, has recently unveiled a number of glass pods, dubbed as “husband storage pods”, for shopping wives to deposit their disgruntled, bored spouses in.
Each pod is equipped with a standard computer set, paired with a comfy gaming chair and an arcade gamepad. Men perusing of the pod can hang around and play previous-gen games while their wives go about their cyclical shopping routine. The pods are currently free to use for patrons, but the staff will soon be charging a small fee for the service.

A certain Mr. Yang praised the concept, noting that it was: “Really great! I’ve just played Tekken 3 and felt like I was back at school!”
Another customer, Mr. Wu, agreed with Mr. Yang’s assessment but added that the service seriously needs improvement in the AC department: “There’s no ventilation or air conditioning, I sat playing for five minutes and was drenched in sweat.”
