Does It Capture Drool?

Napping at a desk can be hard on the body. We've tried. This patent is for a "kit of interactive soft-bodied components" that allows the exhausted office worker to sleep in a sitting position. A sling for the hands lets the user support the head, while a separate component provides cushion and traction for the elbows.

The inventor is Michael Sinks of Chester, Virginia.
