A full-size medical pod from the cult British sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf.
This medical pod was used for the Series 11 episode ‘Samsara’, in which the crew of the mining vessel Red Dwarf investigate the lost exploration ship S.S. Samsara. The pod can be seen in Red Dwarf's medical bay, where Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) presents the vaporised remains of two Samsara crew members recovered from a stranded escape pod.
Based on a sleep pod from the making of the Ridley Scott film Prometheus, the piece is made of rapid-prototyped resin with an MDF and fibreglass frame. It features a retractable panel on the top with an interior cabin lined with resin and metal dress-up components. The casing is made of clear acrylic with a white frame. Light-up panels and buttons are present internally and externally. The pod is finished in white with various safety warnings and code numbers applied. A flat medical mattress with simple sheeting is present within, creating the appearance of a hospital bed.
Electronics are installed throughout the pod, including a series of white LED strip lights and a light-up control panel at the head of the pod, all of which remain functional. A video screen situated at the front of the pod, which previously played video content from DVD players, is no longer present.
Well-used on the production, the sleep pod shows signs of wear to the acrylic dome and has some scuffs and wear from use. However, in spite of this wear, the piece remains in overall very good condition.
