NapbookHafsteinn Juliusson designed the Napbook, a laptop case that can double as a pillow. It was created for students, business folk between sessions, or anyone who has the need to catch a few winks. Because the Napbook is only available at the Apple store in Reykjavik, Iceland, it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to pick up an inexpensive pillow, cut out some of its innards, and make your own.

Check out Hafsteinn’s other ideas, including his Slim Chips, flavored paper with no calories and Growing Jewelry, made with live Icelandic moss.

Gordon Ramsay’s Near-Death Experience

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Television,

Gordon Ramsay‘s ability to perform in high-pressure situations recently came in handy during a shoot in Iceland.

In an interview with The Sun, the popular chef admitted surviving a near-death experience while filming Britain’s The F Word. Gordon had been standing on a cliff in the Westman Islands when his foot slipped and he plunged 280 feet. Despite landing in a creek, the host’s boots prevented him from surfacing immediately. After approximately 45 seconds in the water, the show’s crew threw down a rope to him.

“I’m an extremely good swimmer, but I couldn’t get to the surface. I was panicking and my lungs were filling with water. When I got to the top after getting my boots off I was dazed and my head was totally numb,” said Ramsay.
