iSleep: Using Your Laptop To Wake Up In an Analog Way

iSleep is an innovative concept by the German designer Ivonne Dippman. It combines features of your laptop that you wouldn't think about combining. The basic concept is to provide users with a useful analog multi-function extension.

iSleep comes in the form of a comfortable pillow which can be attached to the top of a laptop. It functions as a rescue while traveling in airplanes. By closing the lid of the laptop, a pillow gets inflated with warm air, and music is played for a pre-determined period of time. After that period, an alarm clock rings.

The pillow is connected via a valve to the fan of the computer. When the computer enters sleep mode, the warm exhaust is blown into the pillow. The pillow is coated with Latex in the inside, so it will keep the air warm for a longer time. The heated air is stopped when the laptop is opened. Music is played via the computer. The length of the playlist equates to the length of your nap. After the last song is played, you can program it to sound an alarm. The intensity of the alarm is programmable as well. We found this little pillow a really good way to use the excess heat generated by most modern laptops.
