When you’re crammed into a tiny seat on a long flight (or worse — a red eye), finding a comfortable position in which to take a nap is pretty much pointless. Sure, those awkward neck pillows are good for about 20 minutes. Until you realize they’re really not. And while laying your head down to rest on the tray table seemed like a golden idea at the time, the bruise on your head from the guy in front of you throwing his seat back says otherwise.
What if there were a way to finally — finally grab some shut eye on your next trip? Well thanks to a new design that Beoing has just patented, there very well could be.
May we present to you, the “Cuddle Chair.”
Okay, so this looks totally awkward, right? But then again, so do massage chairs at malls until you sit in them. This one comes bundled in a backpack, and with a built-in chest cushion and headrest, we’re thinking this looks like a nice way to have a good old fashioned nap. That is, until someone needs to squeeze by you to go use the washroom.
The Cuddle Chair, which is technically known as the “Transport Vehicle Upright Sleep Support System,” finally seems like the solution tummy and side sleepers have been waiting for their whole flight. Too bad that as of right now, the idea is still in the early development stages.
