Excellent job of showing everyone exactly what that CPAP mask feels like.


#4

Single, I’m guessing…


#5

Tail goes around the neck, bro. Attention to detail.

#7

Very creative, but way too damn close for comfort.


#8

I doubt many single people think to get a CPAP machine.


#9

Just hollow out the tail for the hose and it will be near perfect.


#10

Masks like the Phillips Dreamwear under the nose mask are much more open and less claustrophobic than older style oronasal masks that cover the mouth and nose.


#11

I think I’d want something Darth Vader-ish.
You’d already have the sound effect, so why stop there.


#12

Agreed. Thats what I use, and I still whine to myself nighty, refusing to grow up and accept this new reality, this alien device.


#13

you mean I … that wasn’t real?!? I killed a person!? I feel, just uh. Huh you think that mask might help my sleep apnea?

That’s just what I was thinking about his dating prospects. Let’s hope that relationship status is Already Committed to a Sci-Fi Fan. :wink:

A plushie version as an eye mask for sleeping on a plane, you say?

SOLD!

Edit: with a bit of elegant design and engineering, the wrap-around legs and tail could double as neck support for sleeping upright in an airline chair.


#16

he tried to do that, but the tail wasn’t flexible enough.

if my husband ever got one of these, i’d never get a wink of sleep ever again, no matter how quietly he slept. he better not get any ideas from this.


#17

You get used to it. That’s the same mask I’ve been wearing for two years now (minus the facehugger). Uninterrupted deep sleep is so worth the minor inconvenience.


#18

If you have sleep apnea and wake up gasping for breath you wouldn’t say that.


#19

Plushie?
