>> Ostrich Pillow for power naps invented
The Ostrich Pillow for power napping has been invented by designers.
The invention is perfect for resting on the go and enables users to lay their heads on any surface, as well as blocking out sight and sound.
Makers Kawamura-Ganjavian and product innovators Studio Banana Things are applying for funding for the innovation through the creative platform Kickstarter.
The company's research has revealed that a 20-minute nap could increase productivity by 37%.
Kawamura-Ganjavian co-founder Ali Ganjavian said: "Seeing as we all spend more and more time at work, in front of a computer screen or in transit and less time relaxing, we thought why not create something that helps us recharge. That's how the Ostrich Pillow came to life."
Pablo Carrascal of Studio Banana explained: "The pillow was conceived by accident. One day we had an old sweater lying on a table in the studio and someone put his head through the neck of the sweater from the outside and his arms through the sleeves. It was so comfortable we decided to produce a prototype."
A spokesperson said: "Ostrich Pillow offers 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. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates both your head and hands, perfect for a power nap.
"You can use the Ostrich Pillow at your desk, on a bench, on the train or while you wait at the airport to catch a flight. In fact, you can use the Ostrich Pillow whenever and wherever you feel like a nap is needed."
