Just when you thought it was safe again to buy a blanket without sleeves, here comes a "bed sheet with integrated sleeping garment."

The invention, designed for infants, kids and adults (we know you're thinking about yourself), includes a bedsheet with a built-in garment that holds the user securely in the middle of the mattress. The sheet, which also allows the user to sit or stand on the mattress, keeps the person warm without the use of a separate blanket, according to the patent filing.

The inventors are Joanna and Jan Marco von Yurt of Santa Barbara, California.
