FaceCradle travel pillow - Upgrade to sleeping class

Written by

Frequent economy class travellers know this all to well; sleeping well on a long flight is near impossible. Space is limited, seat position is less than ideal and in flight pillows are pointless. A standard travel pillow can help, but only to a small degree. A new Kickstarter project has evolved the U-shaped travel pillow and claims it is like upgrading to 'sleeping class'.

The FaceCradle is an advanced travel pillow created by Hairy Turle and has already raised over 1.2 million AUD on their crowdfunding campaign. The pillow features an internal frame with a locking hindge mechanism with two U-shaped pillows attached. The design allows for five comfort modes. These modes enable the user to find a more ideal sleeping position while on long flights or for other trips. Watch the campaign video below to see how it works.

FaceCradle was invented by David Scrimshaw and Roz Ruwhiu owners of Hairy Turtle Pty Ltd. David is a highly awarded product designer, product marketer and entrepreneur, with over 30 patents to his name and the founder of Ozito, a famous power tool brand based in Australia. Roz has many years experience in Advertising where, as the Head of Production she has made countless television commercials mostly for famous brands and working with some of the most creative talent in her industry.
