Here’s another interesting invention that leveraged KickStarter crowd-funding to get it’s feet off the ground.
It’s aptly named the Ostrich Pillow. It’s a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease. It is neither a pillow, nor cushion, bed or garment, but a bit of each all at the same time. It’s soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates both your head and hands, perfect for a power nap.
Warm, soothing cave-like shelter? I can get into that!
I wonder if they issue these on campus at Google? Sounds like a terrific private label opportunity to me!

I can honestly say I never napped the ‘old way’ like this guy! Ok, maybe once. No, now that I think about it, I can specifically remember several times actually in the Temple Engineering building. It was a blue Jansport backpack. Ah, memories. Queue the Streisand song. Now that I have that song stuck in your head…
Should I decide to max out my awake time by finally initiating the Uberman polyphasic sleep pattern, aka NASA naps, I’ve been contemplating for years, I’ll surely get one to make the away from home napping more comfortable. So, if you see an ostrich in my car, don’t be alarmed. If you see one at my desk, shhh…come back in 2o minutes. If I just peeked your interest, Buckminster Fuller practiced this for a couple years, but I believe he used the Dymaxion 30-minute quad polyphasic cycle, not the Uberman 6. More on my research of this topic and the plan I’ll eventually follow later.
Last I checked, the Ostrich Pillows were $99. You can buy one here. If that one is too big, take a look at Ostrich Pillow Light. Oh, look! They have a family pack! How cute…
