private space travel is no longer a vision of the future, as practical items are conceived by postlerferguson in ‘personal space’.  previous to the sleek design proposed by creative agency, space objects have been more commonly associated with being clunky. to challenge this relation, elegant tools are developed to aid comfort in the great frontier. the ‘personal space’ collection consists of a heater, a light, an ‘air enhancer’-that releases oxygen, and a smoker. these gadgets would be fitted into galactic pods to provide domestic amenities, that are rather lacking in current voyages. a better sensorial experience has been realized by martin postler, ian ferguson, and carson leong who have exhibited ‘personal space’ in september 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
