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.

The FaceCra­dle’s “deep sleep” mode: Hope­fully they’ll turn the lights down soon
