New York inventor Jamie O'Shea will not be remembered for giving the world civil flight, nor electricity: he probably won't be remembered at all. His creature, the Vertical Bed, is just what can be deduced from the naked name: a bed that allows you to sleep .. standing up.
The brilliant invention can support the weight of an individual's body simply by fixing its bases to a drain. Let's be honest, I have no idea who can find comforting taking a nap in the middle of a busy road, but if you are a traffic policeman and you have to stand long hours on your feet, probably such a contraption could come in handy, given the fact that can fold and close in a small portable suitcase. The kit also includes soundproof headphones, dark glasses (laugh) and a sedentary umbrella, in case the weather changes during the nap.
To prove the goodness of his creation, O'Shea tested his Vertical Bed in New York, his adopted city, between 33rd and Broadway. He went right there, from 6 in the morning, to sleep for about 40 minutes at a time every 4 hours. No, nobody beat him.
However, when he's not sleeping on the street, O'Shea works on other shrewd inventions: he's currently working in the Caloris Basin, a huddle capable of producing high temperatures from the sun's rays, a sort of no-cost stove. Now that I think about it, they all seem like homeless-oriented solutions. Okay, shall we talk about it in some time?
Meanwhile the Vertical Bed is not yet available for sale: probably the narcoleptic niche has not yet received any notice.
