Stay in bed

Sometimes you probably just don't feel like getting out of bed in the morning and going to work.

Well, depending on your job, it might be possible just to stay there.

Brian Ashcraft, writing for Kotaku, the news website for computer gamers, has discovered a Japanese-made device that allows you to work – or play games – while lying comfortably in your bed. (http://bit.ly/1qKEbof)

It's called the "Super Upward-Looking Dozing Desk" and it is made by the Japanese company Sanko.

There are other such devices available, but they tend to be very expensive. The Dozing Desk, however, will sell for only about US$90 (2900 baht) when it goes on the market shortly.

Actually, it's not just for dozing – I mean working. The device is very flexible and could have many uses, a bed-top coffee table, for example.
