Working on creating a startup is tough. Work happens at night just as often as it does during "normal" hours of the day. Sleep is often interrupted by spontaneous ideas, last minute thoughts, and never ending worries about details. Napping is a great solution to this restless schedule. The only problem is that there just never seems to be a good time or place to squeeze one in! With this life style, naps are essential. A good power-nap can help transform one from a zombie state into a productive monster! Speaking from personal experience, we at Casepops have devised some clever napping solutions to share with the rest of you who might also be suffering from "startup brain fatigue."
While these "nap solutions" work somewhat well, they're never quite as successful as they could be. Luckily, someone seems to feel our pain too. Enter The Ostrich Pillow. What started off as a seemingly ridiculous product on Kickstarter has become a viral hit, raising many more thousands of dollars than was necessary.
"OSTRICH PILLOW is a revolutionary new product to enable easy power naps anytime, everywhere, OSTRICH PILLOW ‘s unique design offers a micro environment in which to take a cozy and comfortable power nap at ease."
This thing is both genius and intriguingly weird at the same time! Not only does it let someone rest their head in a peaceful, soft, and dark space, but it turns anyone willing to wear it into what appears to be an alien-like being!

Fashionable? Maybe. Maybe not. You decide. The Ostrich Pillow is one of those things like Moon Boots. At first it seems like a ridiculously unnecessary item that no one would ever buy, but then it manages to somehow become adopted by the fashion community.
