Everyone should have the space they need to be creative, to work and play, and to expand the idea of home beyond the limits of a static building. With Pod, we wanted to offer more living space to people who didn’t want to move or deal with the hassle of an expensive remodel.

Today Autonomous https://www.autonomous.ai/ best known for their work-from-home solutions including standing desks, ergonomic chairs, and accessories, launched Pod, please visit https://www.autonomous.ai/pods for more details. It’s the latest in the brand’s series of freestanding backyard structures, and this one is so simple to set up it can be built and ready to use the same day it arrives. To commemorate the launch, Autonomous is running a weeklong sales event on their website for early buyers, which offers limited quantities of Pod to super early birds, early birds, and remaining sale customers priced respectively at $15,000, $17,000, and $19,000 with a deposit of only $100, before returning to regular price ($21,000).

Pod was designed with versatility in mind. It comes pre-wired and prepped with creature comforts like air conditioning and heating, warm overhead lighting, and handy outlets for gadgets and appliances. It just needs to be plugged into a power source and then it’s ready to be transformed for myriad uses like a backyard office, a meditation space, an art studio, a guest house, a games room, a home gym, a kid’s playroom, and more. With a spacious interior, peace and quiet, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors, there’s lots of space for the biggest ideas.

“Pod offers a more efficient, affordable, and scalable way to expand housing for our growing population,” said Autonomous founder, Duy Huynh. “Everyone should have the space they need to be creative, to work and play, and to expand the idea of home beyond the limits of a static building. With Pod, we wanted to offer more living space to people who didn’t want to move or deal with the hassle of an expensive remodel. Pod provides additional space without the heavy cost of construction and creates a designated area for whatever is needed most in life—a home office, teen den, or a yoga studio.”

“We wanted to create a truly flexible space, which is why we designed Pod with both personal use and monetization in mind,” Duy Huynh continued . “With ‘tiny house’ rentals exploding in popularity, users may choose to transform their Pod into a cozy and comfortable Airbnb rental. Remote workspaces are also in high demand these days. And while shared co-working spaces are popping up in most urban areas around the country, private office rentals remain a luxury service with scarce availability. With Pod, owners can provide a standalone, totally exclusive workspace for anyone to rent by the hour, day, or month, no matter where they live.”

Pod ships free across the USA and comes with clear assembly instructions and a headache-free construction process that can be completed in just a few hours. The fuss-free foundation can be installed on any terrain without any need for a concrete surface, and doesn’t require a permit in most locales. Its elevated feet can be adjusted to precisely the right custom heights so the pod stays flat and stable (even on slopes and rough ground)—handling weights up to four tons.

Pod’s walls are built with a layered combination of plywood, a sturdy wooden frame, insulation foam, bitumen and a composite wood coating. It's exceptionally durable and able to withstand changing weather patterns year-round within the range of -60° to 122°F. With an integrated ventilation system and inputs for centralized heating and cooling, users will feel comfortable whether they’re using it on a snowy winter day, or in the heat of the summer. The elevated platform helps safeguard Pod from heat, insects, water, and mold.

The flexibility, strength and durability of the Pod can be traced back to where it all starts, in the manufacturing process which Autonomous carefully controls from start to finish. Every step of the prefabricated build is precisely controlled and tested to exceed factory standards—every piece of lumber, every joint, and every seal—for a level of quality and attention to detail unmatched by traditional structures built onsite.

Super early bird units will ship in February 2022, with subsequent units shipping March 2022. Media wishing to interview Autonomous personnel should contact Victoria Tran.
