The Ostrich Pillow is a pillow that is shaped like a hollow bean bag, meant to enclose the human head and present a soothing napping environment for its users.
From its KickStarter website: “OSTRICH PILLOW offers a micro environment in which to take a comfortable power nap in the office, travelling or wherever you want.” The Ostrich Pillow was successfully funded on 18th October 2012.
When interviewed by In Bed With Designers, the inventors said: “We have been overwhelmed with the positive response and delighted to be able to fulfill the global need for napping.” The idea came about when they observed, “…subsequent to the invention of the light bulb people are sleeping less and less.” The idea they hit upon was “mobile napping”.
