Successfully Kickstarted last summer, the NapAnywhere was created by Ravi Shamaiengar, MD, as an alternative to those bulky, U-shaped airport neck pillows that are never quite as supportive as you want them to be. Instead, the NapAnywhere unfolds into a kind of neck-brace/scaffold between your chin and shoulder, with a strap to hold it in place. (Though, that strap could present messenger-bag-like difficulties for those of us who are a bit bustier.) This video gives a better idea of what the unfolding process is like, with a bonus cameo from an adorable child.
And, as obsessed as we are with the Ostrich head pillow and its lighter cousin, the NapAnywhere system seems like it would be just a tad easier to integrate into normal human life. Gizmodo even suggests pulling a hoodie over it to steal a quick stealth-nap. So, fear thou not the public snooze, and nap on.
