Power Nap Time

Need a power nap? No problem. Designer Forrest Jessee has an innovative answer to your need to not let sleep interfere with your work. He's come up with a cross between a space suit and portable bed based on Buckminster Fuller's concept of Dymaxion Sleeping, which relies on short power naps throughout a 24 hour period rather than more traditional wake sleep cycles as a way of getting more work done and being more refreshed.

Structural pleats made of shock absorbing EVA foam create a cozy cocoon for personal use anywhere-- anywhere at all. Nap in the park, on the subway, in a hallway, wherever. It's a ground breaking design idea that not only merges work and rest times, but also breaks down the barriers between private and public spaces. First the virtual office and now Power Naps to go.

What will they think of next?
