MiniMotel for your airport overnights


If you are spending a lot of time sleeping in airports, the  folks over at MiniMotel have a product for you.  They’ve put together a 4.7 pound, $50 mini-tent designed to help you catch a few winks while in the airport.

Sure, it looks a bit strange, and there are smaller and lighter tents out there, but this one is specifically for travel, so it must be better, right?  It does include an air mattress for you to use, though it doesn’t actually seem to be big enough to fit a bag inside with you, which could be a problem.

I’ve got a couple nights coming up that I might be sleeping in SNA and OKC thanks to a mileage run.  I’ll probably opt for a small air mattress and my bag as a pillow, but it certainly is a fun concept.  Oh, and if you order 1000+ you can put your own logo on it.

More discussion over at BoingBoing Gadgets, too.
