Lawmakers should use anti-snooze seats: VP

KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. Vice President Jusuf Kalla has suggested that lawmakers, who are infamous for dozing off during meetings at the House of Representatives, use anti-sleep seats designed by Brawijaya University students.

“It would be very good for House members in the assembly room,” Kalla said at a seminar on business start-ups at the University’s campus in Malang, East Java on Monday as reported by

The vice president said the seats would be very useful in the House, given the many photos and videos of house members nodding off or dozing during sessions.

"I will ask the House Speaker to make these anti-sleep seats available in the House," he said.

The seat, dubbed Alakantuk, is the brainchild of three Brawijaya mechanical engineering students named Wahyu Tasry Naufal, Asri Anjasari and Prayoga Bintang Primawan. They came up with the idea as a way to decrease the number of car accidents caused by sleepiness.

The innovation consists of a cushion and a bracelet that contains a heartbeat sensor. When the user’s heartbeat slows, the cushion will vibrate.

“When the cushion vibrates, your heart rate will go up and your blood flow will improve, so you will be more focused as you drive,” Prayoga said, adding that the seat could also be used by university students to stay alert during lectures. (kmt/rin)
