Watch TV, read horizontally with prism glasses

Don't go to the effort of propping your head up. Just slip these specs on and doze off.

Thanko

I always applaud innovations in the art of laziness, and the gadget elves at Thanko are masters at it.

Take Gorone de Megane, the latest eyewear to come out of Thanko's Tokyo workshop.

As the name suggests, these "napping glasses" let you read a book, watch TV, or use your smartphone while remaining completely horizontal in bed or on the couch.

Prisms in the specs reflect light into your peepers, leaving you perfectly positioned to nod off into a blissful snooze.

Of course, you'll then be sleeping with a pair of clunky glasses on your face. They weigh about 3 ounces.

But hey, the art of laziness is ever-evolving and someone at Thanko will surely devise a solution to that.

In the meantime, they're selling the lazy specs in Japan for 1,980 yen ($21). They're also available here.

Sweet dreams!

Thanko
