S’poreans Invent Pillow That Inflates in One Puff, Get Funded More Than 300%

Remember this Kickstarter project which was done by a group of Singaporeans and was a huge success? Well here’s another Kickstarter project by Singaporeans which has raised 3 times more than their initial goal!

Are you the type who will bring along a travel pillow/inflatable pillow when you’re travelling? Don’t you find it troublesome to bring along a travel pillow due to how bulky it is?

And let’s not get started on how many puffs of air you’ll need to blow up an inflatable pillow. Here’s an invention which will solve your problem!

Introducing the Aubergine Pillow!

It’s an inflatable pillow which inflates the entire pillow in just one (or two) puffs! The bonus is that it’s extremely compact.

This pillow allows puffing to be done 2 inches away from the spout; which then initiates the Bernoulli effect, using the surrounding air to multiply the volume of your breath.

No more tasting of stale saliva when you want to re-inflate your pillow!

The Aubergine pillow is also a perfect size when inflated for maximum hug-ability. Be prepared for a good nap in the office or while you’re travelling! So hug-away!

The contours and a well-placed dimple on this pillow allow it to cradle your head and support your neck at the same time. A good support will not only eliminate all the head lolling and bobbing (think when you’re on the bus) but will also go beyond that by stabilising your head for an optimal on-the-go sleeping posture! And for those who often drool when you’re asleep, the pillow is manufactured with dark coloured fabrics so those stains won’t be visible. The fabric are perfectly machine washable as well!

Aside from inflating fast, it deflates just as fast. After deflating, the pillow can be rolled up to a 16cm x 7cm dimension; when it’s inflated, the dimension is 60cm x 30cm.
