Sleeep PRO Earplug For Maximum Rest

Sleeep PRO earplugs help you sleep. How they help, I have no idea. But they have ground breaking technology, which I'm sure helps. Not to mention titanium.

Sleeep® is a brand new tiny earplug design with our ground breaking technology, great for a long and uninterrupted nights sleep.

Sleeep® is half the size of its predecessor, Snoozers®.

There are two models, Sleeep® (Natural Aluminium and Silver Pink) and Sleeep® PRO (Titanium). Both come with our improved range of super-soft and durable memory-foam tips (Earfoams®).

Sleeep® has been designed to fit even the smallest of ear canals with its metal core being almost entirely encapsulated in memory-foam for maximum comfort.

Science fiction writers also love to sleep, and often write about how technology could help people do it better. Except for A.E. van Vogt, who as I recall had some kind of system where he wrote in 850 word chunks, waking himself up at odd intervals to write down what his brain was working on.

I just know you'd want to ditch those futuristic-looking earplugs and put on this amazing creation, the sleep-inducer from Arthur C. Clarke's terrific 1963 short story Sunjammer published in Boy's Life magazine.

Merton snapped the elastic bands of the cabin seat around his waist and legs, then placed the electrodes of the sleep-inducer on his forehead. He set the timer for three hours and relaxed.

Very gently, hypnotically, the electronic pulses throbbed in the frontal lobes of his brain. Colored spirals of light expanded beneath his closed eyelids, widening outward to sleep.

At least Clarke explained how it worked.

I don't doubt you're still looking for other possible fictional solutions to that sleep deficit you have. Compare to sleep surrogate from Robert Heinlein's 1941 novel Methuselah's Children, the sleep set from Larry Niven's 1970 novel Ringworld and the napcap From Niven and Barnes' 2000 novel Saturn's Race.

You might also enjoy Philip K. Dick's weary deep-sleep which is his treatment of the "cold sleep" idea, but turns out to be less than ideal. From Lies, Inc. which should tell you something.
