The NapAnywhere is now available on Amazon and eBay!

Hello everyone,

Since our last update we have been diligently working to increase the ability for anyone to learn about and purchase a NapAnywhere. We have just opened stores on both Amazon and eBay. Both stores are operated by NapAnywhere, LLC.

NapAnywhere continues to sell every day through our website (www.napanywhere.net). Thousands have been sold to customers all over the world.

I hope everyone is happy with the product. I will strive to make improvements with each run.

I was recently interviewed by Matt Ward from the Art of the Kickstart. Matt's site shares the stories and insights from successful Kickstarter entrepreneurs. It is an honor to be included. Please share his site with others. Below is the link to my interview. Give it a listen (you can always hit stop if I'm too boring, unless you need a nap). I listened to it tonight and it brought back some fun memories of the NapAnywhere story.

Thanks again for all the support! Keep spreading the word!

How to NapAnywhere: Part Deux!

As most of you have discovered, the previous link to my "How to NapAnywhere" video is no longer functional. Unfortunately, that link was included on our instruction sheet and letter. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

The good news is that I have now uploaded the video to YouTube (see video below).

The new links are http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JviLJXndfQw or http://napanywhere.net/how-to/.

A couple of hints on using the NapAnywhere are included in my letter and instruction sheet. Some highlights include 1) folding the ears of the shoulder portion down to help the NapAnywhere grip the shoulder, 2) making sure the neck portion is up against the neck as close as possible (if a shirt, jacket or hoodie is in the way, try removing it), and 3) tucking/folding the head piece under your chin, along the side of your head, and/or behind your head for extra support. 

When using the strap, position it like a seatbelt well below the armpit which is opposite to the NapAnywhere. Women should position the strap between their breasts (it's ok, I'm a doctor!). 

Don't be afraid to experiment. Everyone may use it a little bit differently. That's okay and one advantage of the design. 

(Please avoid bending the NapAnywhere quickly back and forth which may result in metal fatigue. Thanks, Aaron (my engineer)!)

I hope this helps! Happy Holidays!

Ravi
