No, before you ask, the picture below isn’t the modern-day Elephant Man.

It’s just a commuter enjoying 40 winks while wearing an Ostrich Pillow — the new way to catch a comfortable power nap (which, incidentally, has been proven to increase productivity by up to 30 per cent).

Just pop the sack over your head — aligning your nose and mouth with the breathing hole — and, if you desire, put your hands in the top two holes to create a dark, warm space for a cosy snooze.

While it might scare children, the appeal of this invention — currently just a prototype — is easy to see.

Yes, your boss will notice you sleeping on the job, but it will undoubtedly secure you a free seat on the bus.
