Strange Ostrich Pillow to Be Shipped To Customers by December 15

When the European design company Studio Banana Things came up with its original Ostrich Pillow, people were wondering if anyone would be brave enough to actually use it in public. In response, the company came up with the new model called Ostrich Pillow Light, which is arguably a bit less strange. The Ostrich Pillow Light covers the entire head and serves as a blindfold, a neck scarf and a statement: I dare wear this in public.

The purpose of the Ostrich Pillow, according to its designers, is to allow people to successfully powernap anywhere, anytime. The Ostrich Pillow Light is stuffed with "silicon coated micro-beads."  The beads are supposed to protect the wearer from the noise and the padding will provide soft cushion for the entire head. The Ostrich Pillow is available in one size only, but it can be adjusted with an elastic ring. 

The idea for the Ostrich Pillow is based on the scientific fact that 20 minutes nap can increase person’s productivity by about 30 percents. Since people are spending increasing amount of time in front of their computer, in the office or on the way from or to the office, Ostrich pillow will allow them to disconnect from the surrounding environment, have a comfortable nap, and recharge batteries.

If the Studio Banana Things gets enough backers for its revolutionary invention, the Pillow will be available for shipping by December 15. So far, their campaign looks like it is working and we will probably see people wearing Ostrich Pillow by the next year. The price will be $44 for one and $79 for two, shipping included.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
