Many people find trying to catch 40 winks on a flight a real nightmare, because their heads continually jolt forward, abruptly waking them up.
The answer to a deep sleep at 35,000 feet could be a new pillow that’s designed to keep the user’s head in an upright, comfortable position.
The SkyDreamer, by San Francisco-based company Outlier Inspired, is a pillow that supports the chin with a cushioned platform, allowing holidaymakers to slumber without gravity rudely awakening them.
The simple yet clever concept is made out of crinkled taffeta, cuddle suede and polyester fiberfill
A Kickstarter page for the product has so far received a huge $18,079 (£13,000) worth of backing from investors – $8,000 (£5,600) more than it initially set out to raise when it launched on January 4
The simple yet clever concept, which is made out of crinkled taffeta, cuddle suede and polyester fiberfill, has so far received a huge $18,079 (£13,000) worth of backing from investors on Kickstarter – $8,000 (£5,600) more than it initially set out to raise when it launched on January 4.
Made in two parts for easy portability, the SkyDreamer, which comes in blue, grey and black, fastens in the middle using two poppers and sits beneath the chin of those travelling.
The $69 (£48) pillow can be purchased for $49 (£34) if backed on Kickstarter prior to the closing date on February 15 – and it comes with a matching eye-mask.
Online, the product boasts that it allows flyers to rest their heads in their normal sleeping position and even has higher sides that let the user tilt their head side to side with support without feeling restricted.
