The Vertical Bed: For those too lazy to lay down

The Vertical Bed: For those too lazy to lay downThe artist who created this concept will tell you that it’s some artsy-fartsy way to make a statement and get yourself some polyphasic sleep, which is the practice of sleeping multiple times in a 24-hour period, but really it’s just an excuse to be lazy whenever and wherever you want. So lazy that you don’t even lay down. In fact, it’s a new epidemic of laziness sweeping the globe. This guy basically walks around with his Vertical Bed in a suitcase, finds himself a nice spot, anchors his bed above subway vents and sleeps for about 40 minutes a pop.

Whole damn days must really pass him by. There’s a concealed harness that makes sure he doesn’t fall over and sleep horizontally. He’s also wearing noise canceling headphones and double-mirrored sunglasses, padded with little cushions that keep his eyelids closed. In case of bad weather, an umbrella clips in the infrastructure for shelter. I don’t know, sounds like he’s doing a lot to force his body into sleep. But that’s not the worst of it.

Sonic Boom Alarm ClockSonic Alert has some sleep disturbing Sonic Boom alarm clocks that are capable of putting out a whopping 113 decibel pulsating alarm. The alarm clocks, first developed by a man interested in helping out his deaf grandmother, has grown into a line of products for the hard of hearing and hard to wake.

Needless to say if this alarm doesn’t wake you up, more than likely your neighbors will be over shortly after it goes off to help you out.

It’s made out of some sort of foam or gel material, and you need to add water. There is no mechanical parts or electricity that keep it cool. You just insert it into your pillow case and it automagically draws heat away from your head and keeps it cool for hours.
