Pro-style napping requires professional gear
Power naps are an amazing way to quickly revitalize. However, finding a comfortable and quiet napping spot at work, on the train, or in the airport that won't chisel a permanent crick in your neck can be harder than the surface you're resting on.
Well, consider the problem solved. With the Ostrich Pillow, you can take a blissful power nap just about anywhere!
Create your oasis of calm anywhere
The Ostrich Pillow is designed for power naps anytime the mood strikes you. Its soft, yet firm filling creates a comfortable cocoon anywhere. Feel free to lean your head against metal poles, the back of a wooden bench, or a granite countertop — seriously, anything can be transformed into the perfect napping surface with the Ostrich Pillow.
Shuts out the distractions
The designers of the Ostrich Pillow are from Spain (where they pretty much invented the idea of a nap), so it should be no surprise that this pillow is designed with serious napping in mind.
The Ostrich Pillow's exterior (the part that touches your face) is made from 100% viscose cloth which is super soft, utterly smooth, and highly absorbent, but does not insulate body heat. This ensures you remain cool and comfortable while you nap.
The filling for the Ostrich Pillow is popped polystyrene similar to that found in bean bag chairs. This makes the pillow soft and pliable, but becomes rigid when enough force is applied. It basically forms a protective cocoon around your head while you nap.
It's like a bean bag chair for your cranium
The Ostrich Pillow's filling allows it to conform to the shape of your head as well as whatever your head is resting against. Being sufficiently thick ensures there's enough cushioning so you always feel like you're sleeping on a cloud!
Seriously, you can nap just about anywhere!
You'll be amazed at where you can nap with the Ostrich Pillow. The polystyrene insides provides amazing comfort on nearly any surface. You can comfortably nap on benches, public transit, the plane, or even against a light post (yeah!) — seriously, anywhere!
No matter where you nap, don't worry about the jealous and quizzical looks from the uninitiated public. When you're sleeping contently, you can't see or hear them anyway!
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What are the holes on the side of the pillow for?
Answer: You can put your arms in there if you'd like.
Question: Can I suffocate in this thing?
Answer: Of course not! There's a large hole in the front where your mouth goes. Also, the filling isn't air-tight, and the outer cloth is very breathable. You're safe!
Question: Should I sleep all night in the Ostrich Pillow?
Answer: We don't recommend it. The Ostrich Pillow is designed for short naps.
Question: I don't power nap. And this looks silly. You guys suck!
Answer: Hmm, yet you've read this far down the page...
First, you're missing out by not learning how to power nap. These short naps (10-15 minutes) restore wakefulness and promote performance and learning (courtesy Wikipedia).
In fact, these short naps (for some memory tasks) are just as effective as a full night's sleep! Some studies even suggest that daily power naps can reduce wear and tear on your heart.
For the truly elite napper, you can combine caffeine with your siesta! Immediately after an intake of caffeine, commence your nap. Because caffeine takes up to half an hour to have an alerting effect, your nap will not be affected by the caffeine. Then, when you wake up, you'll enjoy the benefits of both the nap and the caffeine!
So, now that you know how important a power nap can be, why not gear up with the ultimate power napping pillow? Ah, the power of knowledge!
Question: Seriously, though, it does look pretty strange.
Answer: Oh, sorry, I was too busy taking an über comfortable nap atop this craggy mountaintop to read your misspelling of "awesome".
