Guy launches Kickstarter for silly product to help students nap in class

"When a student is exhausted…the Note Pillow is a dream come true."

That's the tagline on a new absurd product idea called The Note Pillow.

Fusion received a story pitch for the pillow with the subject line: Sleeping in class has never been more comfortable.

Never mind the fact that students probably shouldn't be snoozing through lecture, the product promises to turn a notebook into a comfortable pillow for weary college kids everywhere.

As of 11:15 am ET on Monday, a Kickstarter campaign to fund the venture has zero backers, but don't worry, the pitch says, the "Note Pillow is sure to be the hottest accessory across cafeterias in America."


If that line doesn't convince you, maybe this *excellent* video will.

Ready to place an order? You can buy one online for (of course) $9.99! You even have a choice between red or blue. You know, so you don't commit the cardinal sin of clashing with your notebook while you sleep through class.
