If you’re a frequent traveler, this might be the perfect product for you. A father and daughter from Paris have invented a travel pillow called Woollip that offers a more comfortable sleeping position for flying.
The idea of the device is that the passenger can lean on the seat-back tray and it will support their head and upper body as they lean forward. The idea for the pillow comes from the portable massage chair that many airports provide and that shopping malls often have.
Diana Levy, the 21 year old business school graduate, and her father Franck had the idea after sharing a long, uncomfortable flight. They worked on the concept for 18 months with many designers, pilots and physiotherapists to create the right prototype.
When it’s deflated, the device can be rolled into a small bag and it weighs as little as a smartphone. They are starting a Kickstarter Crowdfunding campaign on March 18, which is World Sleep Day, to raise money to get it started.
