Author and science fiction fan Jared Gray needed a CPAP machine to treat his sleep apnea so he decided to have some maker fun with the machine. So he carved out a foam replica Aliens Facehugger to integrate his CPAP mask.

I could probably sleep with this thing on, at least for a couple hours. If nothing else, it helps keep the light out of my eyes."
