Finally, someone’s invented the head hammock so you might finally get some damn sleep on the plane. Sure, it looks ridiculous; but if it helps us finally get some decent shut-eye at 35,000 feet then we don’t really care!
The Nod Travel Pillow easily reached its Kickstarter $20,000 goal within a couple of weeks and then exceeded it by shedloads, raising over $300,000 to date! Production is now underway and I for one am looking forward immensely to testing it out…
Because, as we all know, those neck pillows are next to useless – also, don’t talk to me about people who wear them around the airport – and being endlessly jolted awake every time your chin hits your chest is really not fun.
If you’ve ever sat on a 12-hour flight, in darkness, willing yourself to sleep and thinking there must be a better way, then this is for you.
Introducing the NodPod, aka the head hammock and the answer to your prayers.
It recreates how you sleep in bed (with your head at a 90 degree angle) but in an upright position, so you can nap on the go. And there’s no risk of being jolted awake, or inadvertently head-butting your neighbour.
Maybe don’t wear it while driving though.
The patented ‘Over The Top’ design keeps your head from falling forward, as well as left and right.
It works on all types of seats – planes, trains, automobiles and, yep, office chairs. And, don’t worry, the cord is designed so that it doesn’t obstruct the view the passenger behind you has of their TV screen (so you won’t be rudely awakened by the guy in 23C having an apoplectic fit).
The head hammock was created by Paula Blankenship from Kentucky, after years and years of sleepless travel for work.
Check it out on Kickstarter now. And then you too could achieve the impossible dream…
