In a ‘Nutshell’: Catch some z’s with this portable nap blanket
A student has invented a portable nap blanket called The Nutshell
Are you falling asleep right now? Yearning to catch some z’s but can’t find a comfortable cubby hole for a Mediterranean-style siesta? A New York student may have just found a simple a way to take a break, even if it is a little unorthodox in appearance.
Student Eden Lew invented a portable nap blanket called The Nutshell, perfect for catching a cat nap.
“As a student I’m always looking for the quickest meal to avoid stopping my workflow. I decided that if I’m going to spend five minutes or less eating a lunch, then I might as well use that five minutes to take a mental break,” Eden Lew said, according to UK newspaper The Mirror.
The idea came to her while she was taking a lunch break and a friend of hers introduced her to the Slow Food movement, a movement that started out in the 1960s to promote healthy living.
This idea got her thinking about food, she said.
“I threw out a sandwich wrapper and began to think about topics related to food, lunch and time. Thus the Nutshell was created to block out distractions and to focus on eating and thinking.”
The Nutshell works as a wearable blanket that can be pulled over the head to create a cocoon like nutshell.
