Is The Omni-Pillow Hype Worth it?
For people who are always on the go, sleep is important no matter where it is or the time of day. Take a look at the employees working from 9 to 5, the students who are at school full time and even the people who are always travelling. Catching up some sleep is very important in order to function better but sometimes it’s not just possible if your head is not lying comfortably. This is why an innovative pillow called Omni-Pillow was developed and was posted in Kickstarter for initial funding.
The best thing about the Omni-Pillow is that it can be changed into three different settings for specific functions. It can be formed into a regular travel pillow and wrapped around the user’s neck. It can also be folded if you need to take a power nap at your office desk. At home, you can strap it to your pillows as an added topper for comfort because it is made of memory foam.
The neck pillow is equipped with adjustable strap, a blanket catch, smartphone pocket and a port for your headphones. The project’s page indicated that the Omni-Pillow has a travel bag which is water-resistant and portable. You can attach the pillow to your travel luggage or make it smaller – as small as a mango fruit.
People who donated about $54 to their Kickstarter page will be able to receive the pillow once they start shipping on April. A video is also available at their Kickstarter page.
Riccardo Belleggia, the CMO of Banale, said that their team testes the pillows during their travels when it was still on development stage. They spent many hours and countless nights of traveling for business as well as personal trips visiting their families. They used the pillow on airplanes, buses, hotels, trains and Airbnbs. He added that the prototypes have already travelled a lot that they can’t keep track of the actual kilometers.
It seems to be many are waiting for the actual pillow because their Kickstarter page received a total donation of $117,861 when their original goal is only to get $11,947. Belleggia said that the Omni-Pillow is simple and versatile thus it stands out from the rest.
