This Duvet Cover Makes Itself

There’s now a duvet cover that can make itself at the touch of a button. Yes, that’s the kind of world we live in. The SmartDuvet is a $269 system that automagically straightens your duvet flat by inflating a lattice-shaped bladder at a preset time. The system connects to your smartphone and allows you to schedule when it does its thing, so that you can sleep in on Saturdays for example, but we imagine it can also inflate on demand. If it manages to fully fund, it should ship in May 2017.

The NodPod Lets You Sleep More Naturally, Brings You Stares


Do you value not looking stupid? Then please ignore anything about the NodPod. If you’ve got thicker skin than an elephant though, you stand a chance at being able to sleep comfortably just about anywhere. The NodPod is like a hammock for your face, attaching to a headrest and providing your chin with a soft resting place. It keeps your head upright, preventing it from dropping forward as you nod off. It’s a more natural angle for your neck, and might even work better than a lot of the popular travel pillows you can pick up at the airport’s overpriced shops. Plus, the cord is designed so it doesn’t cover the screen of the person behind you, should you care about such things. Other features include a velcro pocket within which to keep the cords, and a water repellant PU coated fabric to make it easy to clean for the droolers among you. There’s even a safety breakaway feature that detaches the cord if there’s a sudden pressure or impact, preventing you from getting strangled in case of an accident.

It’s a brilliant little travel companion, and at $32 is priced just right.
