Ever been on a long-haul flight and you just haven’t been able to sleep for the entire journey? Well, a new gadget aims to solve that problem, once and for all. The NapUp Fly+ straps your head to your chair, fixing you in position for a well-deserved rest.
While the NapUp Fly is the more basic version of the gadget, the NapUp Fly+ has one extra feature that enhances the entire experience of sleeping on a plane. While both versions have eyeshades to make everything dark, the “+” version has built-in speakers.
This means that you can play to yourself a variety of soothing sounds, chill out music, the sound of waves or other forms of ASMR to send you to sleep. If you don’t want to sleep, there is also a hard-shell case that you can easily store in your hand luggage.
While standard neck pillows do a good job, the NapUp Fly+ aims to make the experience so much better. The mantra of the gadget is that users are more likely to get a good night’s sleep if they don’t move as much.
The original NapUp was designed with the intention of catering to toddlers. Now though, the company has branched out and aims to produce a product that is usable for people of all ages.
However, if the person sitting next to you needs to get up to go to the bathroom, the NapUp Fly won’t be able to keep you asleep. With a Kickstart campaign that aims to reach $30,000, it’s looking like the company will reach its goal very soon.
With a little bit of time and luck, you can expect to see many flyers using this exciting new gadget in the years to come.
One thing’s for sure, people are always going to want a more comfortable experience on a plane in order to get some much-needed shuteye.
