Sleep in a beer can? Yes you can!

I'm sure all the college guys are simply going to love this. Denmark's Smukkeste Festival has seen the launch of the Can Sleep, a mini house in an extra large beer can. Springwise reports that the project is a joint venture between the organizers at the festival and the Royal Unibrew. The Can Sleep are over 11 ft tall and have a diameter of over 7 ft and comes fully furnished with table, chairs, shelves, with a ladder going upstairs to a loft bed that can sleep two adults. All furnishings are provided by IKEA.
Reservations for the 121 Can Sleeps produced for the 2005 festival sold out in just 40 seconds over the internet. While Royal Unibrew has exclusive rights within Denmark, Can Sleep is available to other sponsors outside of the country. Each is priced at about USD 4,000 each (not including delivery charges), with a minimum order of 54 cans (9 six packs).

My husband would love that. It is actually kind of cool. I don't know that I would pay that much to actually sleep in one though.

Yes, I know lots of people who would love to have one of these. It's an amazingly creative and fun idea.
