Windcatcher Air Pakk: Carry Stuff and Sleep On It

Windcatcher Air Pakk

So you’re tired and feel like taking a nap in the middle of nowhere. You’ll have no problem getting comfortable with the Windcatcher Air Pakk, as it’s a backpack that doubles as a pillow when you need one the most. It also transforms into a seat pad so you can sit in comfort, even when you’re seated on the floor or on rough surfaces that might not be very tush-friendly.

As if that’s not enough, the Air Pakk also turns into a sleeping pad when you really need to catch some Zzz’s and there’s no bed in sight. The coolest part is that the bag self-inflates, so you don’t have to lug around a pump, or worse, have to inflate it manually.

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served With A Horse Head Pillow

horse_head_pillow_1

The Godfather fans, check this out. It’s a severed horse-head-stuffed plushy/pillow thing. That’s what we’d like to think of as “the perfect gift”, but of course only for those with a macabre sense of humour or with an unhealthy obsession with the movie. For all of $45 (or $35 unstuffed), you can own a 19 inch by 33 inch replica of one of the most iconic scenes in Hollywood history.

This Pillow Nudges Your Snoring Spouse, So You Don’t Have To

nudging-pillow

Ever spent hours wide awake staring at the ceiling, at 3 in the morning, wondering how you could have married this earthquake-inducing snore machine? Only to finally nudge them in the hopes that a change in position will calm the noise? Yeah, well with this Snore Activated Nudging Pillow, you don’t have to do a thing. A microphone will pick up the snoring and the internal mechanism will slowly inflate an air bladder, with the hopes that the changing shape will prompt the sleeper to move a bit. The microphone’s sensitivity can be adjusted, as well as how much the bladder inflates.

It’s said to be comfortable, although even if it isn’t the Pillow From Heaven™, your ability to sleep is worth even a little bit of discomfort on the part of your spouse, isn’t it? Right. It’s $150.

NapAnywhere Means It Could Be Nappy Time… Anywhere

napanywhere

If you’ve ever bought one of those U-shaped pillows from an airport gift shop in the hopes of getting some z’s on the plane, you likely know that they’re not all that great at their job. They’re generally too soft, with minimal support for your head. But the NapAnywhere device hopes to succeed where others have failed.

NapAnywhere starts as a flat disc. Once opened, the top of the pillow forms a shelf where the user rests his or her head while sleeping. The bottom curves over the user’s shoulder. The area in between is what allows the weight to be distributed around the shoulder, and thus what prevents the head from drooping, which could lead to neck cramps or an annoyed neighbor.

It unfolds flat when not in use, so you can stuff it into a carry on luggage without too much trouble. Designed by Ravi Shamaiengar, the NapAnywhere pillow is available as a $39 Kicstarter pledge until the early bird pricing sells out, after which it goes up $5, to $44.

This Is A Body Pillow With A Hole For Your Breasts

comfybreasts-pillow-1

Us dudes have it easy: we can sleep face down without anything getting in the way. And while we suspect that given the large number of women who also sleep face down, having breasts isn’t that much of an obstacle. Yet, it’s nice to know that someone out there has your comfort in mind, ladies, especially those of you that are… gifted. Michael C. Riley is in the process of getting funding for Comfy Breasts™ Relaxation System (that’s right, trademarked), a full body length foam pillow with an opening for your bosom. So you can lay flat, face down, in comfort. There are a number of sizes, and a selection of unfortunately awful patterns for the cover, but hey… this is the first we hear of anything like this, so we’re going to cut Michael a little slack for his questionable taste in interior design.

The body pillow is $50, or $100 if you want it with the matching head rest. If fully funded, it’ll ship in June.

The Ostrich Pillow Lets You Nap Anywhere, Look Like A Tool

We’re all for the power naps here at OhGizmo HQ. Heck, we’d nap 25 hours a day if we could. But we’re not entirely convinced that the Ostrich pillow is anything we’d ever be caught doing it in. Admittedly, the thing is pretty awesome, if only because it’s so ridiculous looking. But it’s also sort of smart. It’s a pillow with an opening for your hands, and for your mouth and nose. Your eyes are covered and your head is cushioned whether you decide to plop your noggin down on your desk or sleep in the airplane. Sure, you look like an alien plant is devouring you from the top, but the fact that you’re blind will make it easier to ignore the stares.

It’s not a new concept; the Ostrich pillow was talked about over a year ago. But now it’s in the funding phase on Kickstarter, and it’s more than halfway to its goal. At $75, the thing sure isn’t cheap. We’re not sure just who this will appeal to, but we have a feeling that at least a couple of you will think it’s the bee’s knees.
