The Snazzy Napper: Comfort For You, Apprehension For Onlookers
If you are one of those people who likes to catch some extra Z’s every chance you get then the Snazzy Napper may be just the invention for you. The device, which is basically a blanket on a strap, allows you to take a private nap in any number of public places. The idea behind the Snazzy Napper seems to be to give the spontaneous sleeper a bit of extra comfort and darkness in order to promote a more restful snooze.
The gadget features a nose hole for optimum breathability, a nose clip to help hold everything in place and keep light from seeping through the nose hole and an adjustable strap for a customized fit. The Snazzy Napper also comes in two size options. The first is for darkness and privacy alone; the larger version also doubles as a blanket for the user. Patterns feature soothing, fluffy sheep or a moon and Z’s.
This seems like a well intentioned idea, but I just wonder what kind of reactions users would get. So now when you board the bus or airplane, instead of worrying that some weirdo is going to sit right beside you, you can be the one that others are apprehensive about and get in a great nap at the same time.
