Abstract

A pod, particularly for indoor use, consisting of a vertically movable bollard adapted to present utilities and optionally provide security function, presented in a watertight or waterproof housing is disclosed. The pod can provide a watertight or waterproof seal in both its distended and retracted state and also provides a substantially flush, cleanable top surface with respect to the surrounding floor, table, or surface when retracted. The pod may optionally be adapted with a universal adaptor for presenting gas and other like utilities. All utilities are sourced from beneath the ground or from a source outside the pod. The pod is powered and may be controlled directly on the bollard or distant to the bollard by a wired or wireless connection thereto. Finally, the pod may be placed in a floor, table, or other structure as a single stand-alone unit and may work in conjunction with other pods.
