Finally someone has invented a solution to help you sleep on a plane.

If you've ever been stuck in a middle or aisle seat trying to get some shut eye but have been constantly jolted awake by your chin hitting your chest this is for you.

While neck pillows add some cushioning they can leave your neck rather sore and don't entirely keep your head in place.

But now the NodPod plans to revolutionise the world of travel sleep. The ridiculous looking invention has been designed to help you sleep and keep your head in place - stopping it from falling forward, left or right.


It recreates how you sleep in bed, with your head at a 90-degree angle, but in an upright position.

The invention works on all types of seats and the cord is designed so that it won't obstruct the view the passenger behind you has of their TV screen.

Kentucky woman Paula Blankenship created the NodPod after deciding she'd had enough of years and years of sleepless travel for work.

You can pre-order one now - with an October shipping date - for US$30 ($41) on Kickstarter.
