Sleep Like An Egyptian

Monday, February 1, 2010 17:33 GMT

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One designer is helping tired folks sleep like an Egyptian.

Sometimes people just need a little shut-eye during the day, and designer Forrest Jesse is helping them get it with his “Sleep Suit.”

The suit is made of a special foam called EVA and covers a person completely from head to toe, making them resemble a big, billowy mummy.

Jesse describes the suit as a “transportable and adjustable cocoon” that supports the body in all the right places.

After a nice, comfortable nap, people emerge from their cocoon a fully rested butterfly, which will increase productivity afterwards.

Jesse assures that snoozing in the Sleep Suit is a more effective way to get rest because it decreases the time it takes to prepare for bed to only one minute and is designed to ensure the utmost comfort.

Luckily, there are “poke holes” that allow someone to prod the sleeper awake should the boss be walking by.
