With air-traffic delays growing ever more prevalent, one company is marketing an idea that will probably take off (no pun intended) in a big way. The “Mini-Motel” is described as an “affordable, portable sleeping tent perfect for the busy 21st century.” The device can be seen at MiniMotel.net, but it’s basically a one-person tent-like device with an air mattress, pillow, sheet, alarm clock, reading light, toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs and eyeshades. Best of all, it goes for a mere $39.95 (with discounts for larger orders). The idea is you set it up when you’ll be stuck for a bit, so you can get some sleep in privacy. Airlines would be wise to stock these for the next strike or storm. Orders of 1,000 or more can be imprinted with your own logo.
