Headrest jacket

For travelling comfort.
  [vote for,

How many times when travelling have you found yourself seated on a chair with a low backrest, requiring constant effort to maintain posture ?

The proposal is for a jacket with a hood and a concealed system of shoulder straps, to which is attached a shaped, padded brace which can slide up into the hood. A stiff, breathable frame is incorporated into the back of the jacket.

To use, the wearer seats themself and leans back, trapping the frame between the seat and their body. They can then manually (basic version) or electrically (deluxe version) raise the brace, which is a concave headrest.

The user can then tilt back their head and doze off in comfort.

       I didn't realize that hegemonizong swarms dozed. Somehow, that makes them more acceptable.

       We don't, we just want to sell you a useless gadget at a ridiculously inflated price.   

       Think of it as an iPhoney you can wear.

       Now that you ask, I can't think of a single occasion. Trains have high seatbacks. So have cars and aeroplanes. I suppose that some buses have low- backed seats, but nobody travels by bus. What, exactly, did you have in mind?

       Some charming and highly desireable marques of classic and vintage car lack the higher seating found in more modern designs.

       But surely that is up to the owner, when he discusses the car's interior appointments with his coachbuilder?

       For a new vehicle, of course; but to so modify a priceless and irreplaceable classic car, it would be nothing short of sacrelege ...

       See? Here's a great idea, that gets buns only because it is fully baked. Other, truly half-baked ideas should be given the same merit!! Just saying.

       It's not "fully baked". The links are to an inflatable hood, which requires something to lean on and doesn't support the head and neck. It's in the same market sector, but it's not the same.
