This looks ridiculous. Ridiculously COMFY
This week in amazingly named Kickstarter projects: The FaceCradle, which is like you took a regular travel pillow and gave it a shot of adrenalin straight to the heart. Created by a team of Aussie designers who were presumably tired of taking 10-hour flights to ANYWHERE ELSE, the FaceCradle travel pillow boasts five different “modes,” configurations which the pillow locks into to allow you to—they claim—get a far better night’s rest on your next long-haul flight. “Modes” range from the basic “dozing” setup to “snoozing,” in which the pillow locks open at a 45-degree angle so you can tilt your head onto it, to the full blown “deep sleep” mode, in which the pillow opens right up and you strap a harness to the back of your seat, allowing you to lean into the pillow as if you were on a massage table. Yeah, it looks pretty dumb. But as the FaceCradle guys are quick to point out, who cares?
Nothing looks worse than jetlag feels. The FaceCradle has made 18 times its original goal on Kickstarter, so there are evidently a lot of people who agree.
