If you feel like being alone, but don't want to miss out on what's going on around you, Cocoon 1 By Micasa Labs, a Zurich-based company, may be right up your alley. This bubble-like transparent sphere allows you to hang out, sleep or even cook in the confines of a six foot round pod, blurring the lines between furniture and space.
This structure comes with colorful modules like a pillow, storage and sink so you switch out the functions and personalize it for whatever you feel like doing inside. There are also attachements to anchor the ball so it won't roll, a net to suspend it from the ceiling or a tree, as well as power and water hookups so you can be fully-functional while residing in it. The company website states that Cocoon 1 will be available for purchase in the fall of 2012 for $2990.
