I am interested in the idea of creating a story around a world where cheap stasis pods exist. So stasis costs would be a fraction of normal living costs. So people that are poor could choose to spend all their money on getting put into stasis for the next 10 year's and hope for new technologies or changes that would make life better in the future instead or dealing with being poor.
My idea is that in a world with cheap stasis technologies could have a large percentage of the population end up being stored in large warehouse style stasis facilities. With people using stasis as a way to travel to the future and to try and find a better life.
I am interested in figuring out what use of cheap statis pods would be the use that would fundamental change society? So what specific use of the technology would change society the most?
Some examples I have thought of: Get ride of orphanages and foster care and store kids in stasis instead, could change sociaty because everyone would have a "good" upbringing. Prisoners stored in stasis, might not view prison as a bad option. Hospitals using stasis as as way manage waiting lists for surgeries, could increase the length of waiting list.
