Napper / Sleeping Aid


The concept ,Napper' is aiming at making sleeping in public transport more comfortable and more secure. It consists of a hood, which‘s padding makes it cushy to lean against window panes. Bluetooth headphones are integrated in the hood, which, together with a software for the mobile phone, provide sound to fall asleep with, but also make sure you‘ll wake up just in time. In addition, the luggage is secured by a Bluetooth-lock, raising alarm as soon as it is moved away from the owner. 
 The entire system is foldable into a compact bag and can be easily used for daily commuting as well as longer journeys.
