If you have to take a train a lot in order to commute to work or around town, you no doubt get sleepy sometimes. That’s why Pyocotan, a manga artist, has come up with “Noriko-san,” a sleek mask that relies on the kindness of other passengers to work.
The sleep mask features an electronic display that scrolls your destination so other passengers know when you need to get off the train. The idea is that you can sleep comfortably, while knowing someone will alert you when you’ve arrived at your destination.
However, during a test run, no one alerted Pyocotan when he had arrived at his jumping off point. So the test failed. But he strongly believes the devices will be effective once more people start to use them. But what I want to know is what will happen if everyone decides to take a nap at once?
