>> Finally - an excuse to power nap anywhere with the Ostrich Pillow
DON'T FREAK OUT - this man isn't going to rob you. He's just having a power nap.
The benefits of power napping have long been known - it's been proven to increase productivity by up to 30 per cent, and a six-year study found that those who took naps at least 3 times a week had a 37% lower risk of heart-related death.
And now there are no excuses not to sleep whenever the urge seizes you!
ay hello (or goodnight) to the Ostrich Pillow, a product that has been specifically designed to allow you to create a little private space within a public one so you can relax, unwind...and sleep.
Just pop the pillow over your head - there are breathing holes, don't worry - and put your hands in the two holes at the top to keep them cozy.
Created by Kawamura-Ganjavian, a UK-based architecture and design studio, the initial idea of an Ostrich Pillow was shared on the web last year.
The response was overwhelming: "We discovered that thousands of people around the world shared our need to nap and we just had to share our dream with you.
"We've been working on the Ostrich Pillow for one year, testing and exploring the perfect dimensions and materials to create the best possible experience for the nap. Now, we are ready to bring it to market."
The pillow is being spruiked on kickstarter, an online funding platform for creative projects, and the first lot of 300 orders has sold out already.
You can pledge amounts of $75, $140, $325 and $620 to fund the project, and in return you'll receive your very own Ostrich Pillow. When the pledge total reaches $70,000, the creators will have enough dosh to distribute the pillows to the masses.
And if you've got a rather large head, don't worry - the Ostrich Pillow is roomy enough for a 70cm-diameter nong.
