If you’re looking to take a quick nap in the middle of your work day and can’t get away with a George Costanza style sleeping shelf under your desk, then perhaps it’s time to take a look at the Vertical Bed. The sleep aid packs up into it’s own handy travel suitcase and lets you sleep undisturbed standing up.
The Vertical Bed needs to be attached to a metal subway grate to remain sturdy and support your weight. It includes a pair of sunglasses to shield your eyes, noise canceling headphones, and an umbrella. A successful 40 minute sleeping test was performed in New York City recently, so I fully expect the city to be full of Weekend at Bernie’s-like men standing asleep at every subway grate sometime in the near future.
