For office naps, try the i-sleep

When you feel sleepy, just close the laptop and this pillow will automatically inflate using air from the notebook vents.

Ever dozed off at your desk and woken up only to see a long line of gibberish letters on your text document, thanks to your cheek lying on the keyboard? Working when sleepy is a pain, and this concept product, the i-sleep, seeks to make things a little better.

Here's the idea. When you feel sleepy, just close the laptop and this pillow will automatically inflate using air from the notebook vents. You can then safely take a short nap without worrying about oversleeping because an internal alarm wakes you up after 10 minutes. But based on what we know about laptops, we suspect their air vents probably won't blow out enough air to inflate the pillow, especially since most notebooks will power down everything when closed.

Another problem the i-sleep doesn't address: many bosses don't understand the concept that a 10-minute nap is not laziness, but in fact aid productivity--though that doesn't really matter since this is just an idea for a school project and not a real product. But if they ever make an i-sleep that works, I know I'll be getting one.
