Remember the Ostrich Pillow I posted last year that we all made fun of but secretly wanted? Well now there's a Kickstarter push to make the thing a reality, and it's already met half of its $70,000 goal in six days. $75 secures a pillow if they actually make it into production. Me? I made my own out of a t-shirt. "That's JUST a t-shirt." Saved myself $60, I'm just saying.
Did you know that a power naps of around 20 minutes increases productivity by more than 30%? Seeing as we all spend more and more time at work / in front of a computer screen or in transit, we thought why not create a device that helps you disconnect and dream for short periods of time. That's how the OSTRICH PILLOW came to life.
Have fun and rest anywhere! All you have to do so is choose a place to nap, slip into your Ostrich pillow and you're set to go. We have tried it in airports, trains, aeroplanes, libraries, at the office, on a sofa and even on the floor and it's really wonderful!
Admittedly, I do want one, I just don't have $75 in my nap-time budget right now. Normally I fall asleep on one of the commodes in the men's room with my head resting in my hands and my elbows on my knees. Then when I wake up my legs are numb and I have to sit there slapping them for a minute while my coworkers think I'm masturbating.
Hit the jump for a bunch more shots and a Kickstarter video THAT FEATURES GEEKOLOGIE AT THE 1:00 MARK. I'm big-time, baby! I...made it into a Kickstarter video :/
Thanks to Vincent, who power-naps leaning against a wall because...actually I don't why he does that. It doesn't look comfortable, I can tell you that.
