Transformer Clothing: The Sleeping Coat Becomes Your Bedroom
Ever since Micheal Webb's 1968 Suitaloon, (shown below fold) I have been fascinated by designs that let you carry your home on your back, or even integrate it into your clothing. Here is another: Lin Tsui-Wei won a Red Dot Award from Germany's Red Dot Institute for her Sleeping Coat.
It looks like a normal jacket, but functions as both a windbreaker and a sleeping bag.

Designer Lin notes:
It's refreshing to get away from work and the hustle and bustle of life in the city, but spending time in nature can be a challenge - carrying luggage and outdoor equipment, and being prepared for unpredictable weather can cause inconveniences.
It is also flexible; the lower half can be detached and used as a mattress. It also has multiple pockets to store personal items. I like the way that it is inflatable; your coat becomes your mattress.
