Debates about how working from home and using digital tools will change our working lives overall have been in full swing since the pandemic forced many employees out of company premises and into their home offices. At this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon – which was held online – Japanese car manufacturer Nissan presented a concept car that demonstrates how employees can turn working from home into a “workation” now that they are no longer tied to a specific workstation. The Office Pod Concept is based on the model NV350 caravan and combines holidays with office work. It features a built-in workstation that can be extended out of the back of the vehicle when the weather is good. And to ensure all that work at the built-in computer doesn’t get in the way of feeling like you’re on holiday, the caravan also boasts a roof terrace with a parasol and sun lounger. The mobile office can be electronically dimmed and is equipped with a coffee maker, a glove compartment with an antibacterial UV light, and other tools that users might need while travelling or during their working day in the country. It remains to be seen whether the mobile office concept for digital nomads can be realistically used and manufactured at scale.
