For most people the thought of sleeping comfortably on a plane is nothing more than a fever dream. Between the laughable bending headrests seemingly designed to fit the head of a hobbit and the pillows that leave your neck craned in an uncomfortable position, there’s just no good place to rest. The new Cardiff Wings might just fix this problem.
These nifty devices hang from the back of your seat and create “wings” on either side of your head on which to lie. They clip easily onto the back of your seat’s headrest by way of an adjustable mounting system that snaps together with the quick push of a button. Then you simply snap on the wings at your preferred height and you’re good to go. The creators claim setting one up takes only seconds. You can even use one on each side to keep your head from flopping around during the flight.
The purpose is to provide lateral support to keep both your head and body upright while providing a comfortable enough place to fall asleep. It also keeps your head from falling onto your neighbor’s shoulders once you doze off, which everyone can probably appreciate.
The Cardiff Wings are now available for pre-order for $45 online, a veritable steal for those of us desperate for a way to sleep during flights.
Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not a traditional Irish meal. This was what the Irish in America ate because it was all they could afford at the time. From this, it evolved into the staple meal of Irish holidays like St. Patrick’s Day. While it is still a great meal to eat and is relevant, for those looking to have an authentic Irish feast, there are some more traditional dishes.
