Metro Nap App for NYC Subway
by: Tobias Domhan • 26
The most nap-inducing environment yet designed by humanity is the dimly lit labyrinth of its metros. From the heavy drone of the tracks to the social inappropriateness of sleep, there's nowhere more alluring to catch a few Zs. There's only one small issue with this most delectable shut-eye: you inevitably miss your stop, meaning a scramble for the exit and excuses for your boss/girlfriend/mom. Exhausted NYC denizens, rejoice! Tobias Domhan's Metro Nap App for NYC Subway is here to rouse you from your forbidden slumber on time.
When you feel the inevitable lull begin to lower your lids, just open the app and tell it your trajectory and desired final stop. Your device's accelerometer is used to detect movement of the train and count the stops. Right before reaching your destination, your device will set to vibrating furiously, coaxing you back to consciousness just in time to coolly step out the doors.
It may not prevent you from drooling on your seatmate's shoulder, but Tobias Domhan's Metro Nap App for NYC Subway resolves at least one major siestas-on-public-transport issue for New Yorkers.
Please do note that this app is NYC-specific. Someday the rest of we sleepers shall be as lucky.
