Airbag Pillow

Sleep in your truck

Its hard to sleep in some trucks. This idea could easily be used in any vehicle but is designed for trucks. A pillow that you place between your steering wheel and head. The pillow resembles a fully deployed airbag during detonation. Same color, stitching and maybe made of similar fabric. Now sleep is possible in trucks when the seat is impossible to recline.

       Would this press the horn?

       Wouldn't press the horn, no. To elaborate, I was envisioning a hard plastic base that would grip the outside of the wheel. The plastic would go around the horn switch.   

       [21] this applies to some trucks, in some cases. Such as newer trucks with bucket seats. Or trucks without beds. Example, tank truck, loaded box truck, etc. Personally I drive a jeep wrangler. That was the inspiration for the idea

       Bakers, I'm surprised. Kind of disappointed. I posted this idea with a intentional flaw. If someone were sleeping soundly on a airbag analogue someone would eventually wake the person. Wake them to see if they were alive and not the victim of a collision that caused the airbag to deploy. Not everyone is versed in airbag technology. The bag is only inflated for a fraction of a second. After detonation it deflates. A person didn't understand the technology they would probably try to save the sleeper.

       No, we got it and its hilarious. My wife and I laughed out loud. I love it but its funnier if the horn is honking the whole time you sleep on it. [+]

       Okay b the p. I was waiting for someone wearing a serious hat to come in and rain on the idea.   

       although I wore my serious hat when I first defended the idea.   

       Best when the user is a sound sleeper and parked against a brick wall

       //flaw// well, I was thinking of the little old lady smacking the Mercedes with her handbag.

       Pretty much already baked - see: SkyRest Travel Pillow. [link]

       Letsbuildafort, close, so close. But it has to resemble an airbag. Not a block of foam covered in a pillowcase.   

       By the way, I have always enjoyed your username

       When the real airbag goes off, as you're reclining on the faux one, how fast will your head go through the back window ?

       No it isn't. You just put it in overdrive and wedge your left knee against the steering wheel. Geography will determine the length of your nap.

       Bromance, evil and fort. Whoa.

       [bliss] You just gave me an idea. Evil fort building.   

       No more couch cushions and blankets. In these forts the materials include un insulated live wires, grease soaked towels and a small smoldering fire for heat. Instead of clothes pins, rusty aligator clips will hold it all together. No discernable exits.

       Spelling fixed.
evilpenguin, Jan 02 2013
  

       Thanks, [evilpenguin] but the SkyRest Travel Pillow is air-inflated. Looks like all it would need is an automotive industry makeover and "BAM!" .. so to say.

That last link from [21 Quest] takes the cake too. Also: [bliss] don't be jealous! :P
