How far would you go to sleep comfortably on a plane?

A few months ago I polled you, my dear readers, about the B-Tourist and whether it is crazy or brilliant. Well, the Home Warrior just sent me a Yahoo article about crazy travel gadgets (featuring the B-Tourist), and the stuff people Ostrich pillowcome up with to make sleeping easier on a plane kind of blows my mind. The latest is the Ostrich Pillow by Studio Banana Things.

It’s basically a pillow that you stick your head into, with a hole for your nose and mouth, and two more holes for your hands. It’s…bizarre, to say the least. It seriously looks like an alien head. I don’t see how it could be comfortable at all—I would be afraid I would suffocate in my sleep! Not to mention how hot it must be. Imagine wearing a ski mask made of three inch-thick non-breathable padding. I guess if you were trying to sleep outside in Antarctica….

While I totally get wanting to block everything out so you can sleep, a similar effect could be had with an eye mask, headphones and a white noise app, and a regular travel pillow. All of which could be had for less than the $99 asking price for the Ostrich Pillow.

What say you, readers? Is the Ostrich Pillow crazy or brilliant?

If you’ve got some time, read the reviews on Amazon. Highly entertaining, to say the least.

  1. After a particularly rough day at work, I REALLY needed the comic relief this afternoon. I am CRACKING UP at the Amazon reviews—like, I don’t even know where to begin. Did you notice the one from “William Gates” the computer programmer? LOL

    Also per the instructions, please do not smoke while wearing it. hahahaha

  2. I wonder if I can get a settlement from the manufacturer for the chest muscles I pulled laughing lmao while reading the reviews.
