The Ostrich Pillow - One Of The Most Comfortable And Ridiculous Looking Pillows

Like the old myth, where when an ostrich senses danger, it will dig its head into the sand – which is totally untrue, have you ever seen how big those birds are? They are like 6ft tall, weigh 200lbs and can run at 40mph, so could you really imagine them hiding – this silly looking pillow is just that. It has been successfully funded by Kickstarter – currently of over $130,000 – by Kawarmura-Ganjavian, and I have got to say that it looks really comfortable although ridiculous as well.

The Ostrich Pillow is a large and fully encasing pillow

that features an entry point for your head and 2 extra holes on sides to allow your arms to wiggle into, so that you can snuggle along with your hands. The main area that houses your face also includes a small window for you to breathe from such that you don’t suffocate from within, although it may be a comfortable death. Because it fully encases your head you do not necessarily need a desk to get a comfortable sleep, the Ostrich Pillow can be thought of as a 360 degree omni-directional pillow allowing various head placements that would be otherwise uncomfortable or impossible to work with.


The point of the product is to allow you to take power naps on the go without the need to log around a large pillow. And why may you wish to powernap, well because big studies by big corporations and organizations like NASA showing positive effects of power napping. Such benefits range from improved productivity, to increased memory skills, to reducing stress, to simply rejuvenating the body of much needed energy. Power napping is also incredibly quick, an estimated 20 to 30 minutes is all you need to get all of these incredible health benefits. But power napping isn’t too pleasant sleeping on your hands


or on your cold and hard desk. Instead the Ostrich Pillows fits “snuggly” in your bag and gives you your own private power napping space. That idea may not be too desirable if you’re easily claustrophobic, but otherwise it is a fantastic portable relaxing spot for you to unwind.


So enough talk, continue to support the Ostrich Pillow and maybe even pick one up for yourself. They can currently be commercially bought from the Kickstarter funding site for $75 plus $15 shipping to the US. It can also be shipped to Canada for $2 and internationally for $25.
