Sometimes we don't want to read on the subway. Sometimes we just want to take a nap. Which is why we were intrigued by industrial designer Matthew Gale's "Jacket for Sleeping on Public Transportation" - via BoingBoing. The Excubo, as its called, has a stiff collar that surrounds the neck - creating a solid platform for resting the keppe. Imagine the zzz, er, possibilities.

Gale also shows how a Timbuk2 bag can carry any graffiti artists' precious objects.
