Ostrich Pillow lets you bury your head in your nap

The Ostrich Pillow is like carrying around your own personal nap tunnel for blocking out the world when you're sleepy.

You're waiting for your flight at the airport. A snuffling sound emanates from behind you. It's getting louder. You turn to look. An eldritch creature emerges from a gray pod! Oh wait, it's just a fellow traveler removing his Ostrich Pillow. No need to panic.

The Ostrich Pillow looks a bit like a giant garden squash gone soft. It has a hole for your face so you can breath and two side holes to stick your hands in.

The Kickstarter project page refers to it as "a micro environment in which to take a comfortable power nap in the office, traveling, or wherever you want."

The pillow will set you back a $75 pledge, but it will earn you plenty of attention when you try it out in public.

Considering the level of antsiness from the TSA at airports, you may also earn yourself a visit from a security officer if you attempt a pillow power nap before catching your plane.

Personally, I wouldn't be caught out in public with an Ostrich Pillow on my head, but I could see it being a pleasant wintertime companion on a cold night -- in the privacy of my own home.
