Manta Sleep Mask - World’s 1st Modular Eye Mask for Sleeping

Hey Kickstarter,

Are you a Light Sleeper? Night Owl? Frequent Traveler? Napper?

Are you working crazy hours and feeling like you never have enough time to rest?

The problem we face in getting high quality, uninterrupted sleep is always the same: significant lifestyle changes.

Sleep mask can be a great solution. Just put it on, block out the light, and improve the quality of your sleep.

But, common eye masks take a one-size-fits-all approach. They don’t fit, are uncomfortable, and let light through (making it even harder to sleep).

So as industrial designers with over 10 years of experience, we made something better.

 

Manta Sleep Mask is designed to upgrade your sleep & life with a personalized fit.

 

 

 

Manta is the World’s 1st Modular Sleep Mask with FreeFit - so it molds to fit your unique face.

It works for 99% of all face shapes & gives you 100% blackout for your entire sleep cycle...energizing you for wherever life takes you when you wake up.

Regardless of your ethnicity, age, gender, nose shape, or preferred sleeping position, Manta’s patent-pending adjustable modular eye contours create the perfect seal - because it’s specifically tailored to you.

Side sleeper? Belly sleeper? Back sleeper?...we’ve got you covered.

Patent-Pending Modular FreeFit

Experience the Comfort of a Personalized Fit

What if, instead of losing valuable hours of sleep (not to mention cash) trying dozens of different sleep masks, you got it right the first time?

Your work would improve, you’d have more energy to go out, and your body would feel stronger.

Manta Sleep Mask’s modular design, with Patent-Pending omniLAT™, offers an unprecedented level of adjustability that’s easy and intuitive to use.

Because the fit is tailored to you, there’s no extra pressure on your face.

 

The Modular Eye Contours can be adjusted freely to create a customized fit for 99% of all face shapes - including yours.

100% Total Darkness for the Entire 8 Hours

Sleep, Uninterrupted

What if you could sleep through the entire night without waking up even once? Imagine how much better rested you’d feel in the morning.

Thanks to the 100% total blackout of the Manta Sleep Mask, you won’t experience any light leakage, meaning you’ll finally be able to sleep through the night.

Regardless of your sleep position or the shape of your nose, Manta conforms to your face (and keeps the light out).

Eye Contours for REM Sleep

Spend Less Time Sleeping & Feel More Energetic

Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep is when your brain is repaired and renewed.

If you need more energy and want to feel well-rested in the morning, focus on getting more REM sleep.

During REM sleep, your eyes experience rapid movements in random directions. Most sleep masks press against your face and eyes, which can interrupt this process.

Manta has specially designed eye contours that encourage REM sleep.

Because there is no direct contact or pressure on your eyelids, your REM cycle won’t be interrupted.

  

Eye contours do not press against your eyelids, which allow REM sleep to occur.

Since we designed Manta Sleep Mask for ourselves, we went all out to bring you even more sleep-enhancing features.

The 2 sections of the headband are made from elastics, which give you -extra comfort- as the product will STRETCH to fit your head. Limiting the elastics to only these 2 sections prevents the entire band from stretching loose with use.

The mesh design has 2 advantages: 

  • The pouch doubles as a laundry mesh net, so you can machine wash your eye mask without damaging it. The mesh net will significantly extend the life of your Manta Mask. 
  • The pouch also airs out your Manta Sleep Mask when in storage or during your travels. This improves hygiene and prevents odor buildup.

 

ALL YOU – YOUR WANDERLUST

What if you could take advantage of everything your travels have to offer, without running out of energy? Imagine how much more epic & memorable your adventures would be.

Traveling is very disruptive to your sleep quality. Those hours on a plane and adjusting to a new time zone leave you with low energy levels.

Seasoned travelers know that the trick is to catch sleep whenever and wherever you can - be it on the plane, bus, boat, or just a good old couch.

Unfortunately, sleeping conditions on the road are often less than ideal.

That’s where Manta Sleep Mask comes in.

ALL YOU – YOUR POWER NAP

What if, instead of getting coffee 3 times a day, you could get a sustained energy boost? You’d feel like a “million bucks” before even pitching that major deal.

Taking a 30-minute power nap is one of the best ways to recharge yourself in the middle of a busy day.

Despite the short duration, you wake up feeling sharper, stronger, & ready to close the deal.

The problem is, your body has trouble napping under fluorescent light found in the office. This is where Manta comes in.

ALL YOU – YOUR ZEN

What if you could escape from a day of lazy lethargy without overdosing on energy drinks? Imagine how present you’d feel.

Meditation is an exercise for the soul, leading to increased mindfulness and better rest.

Unfortunately, distractions abound in our daily lives.

Every once awhile, it’s important to let go and to try to clear our minds. This is where Manta Sleep Mask comes in.

ALL YOU – YOUR SLEEP-IN

If you only have one day to sleep in, the last thing you want is for the morning sun to wake you up before you’re ready.

Morning light coming in through the window is a major disruption to your sleep, especially if your body hasn’t had enough time to get fully rested.

With our modern lifestyle of going to bed well after sunset, it’s difficult, if not impossible, for our body to get enough rest before sunrise.

And let’s face it: we all just want to sleep in every once in awhile.

This is where Manta comes in.

ALL YOU - YOUR NIGHT SHIFT

What if you could feel rested and have a social life, even while working vampiric hours? Imagine how much healthier you’d be, both emotionally and physically.

According to WebMD, “there is strong evidence that shift work is related to a number of serious health conditions, like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.”

Sleep disturbances and loss only worsen these conditions.

It’s extremely important for night shift workers to create total darkness during the day - and curtains alone simply aren’t enough.

This is where Manta comes in.

ALL YOU - YOUR LIFE (UPGRADED)

What if you could maximize your life, without needing to sleep more hours? Imagine how much more productive you’d be.

While it’s ideal to get 8 hours of sleep, let’s get real: with work responsibilities, social obligations, and family gatherings getting in the way, there’s no way it’s happening every night.

In these situations, all you can do is to maximize the sleep time that you do have and to upgrade your sleep quality.

How rested you feel doesn’t depend on just the duration of your sleep, but also on the quality of it.

The faster you can go into, and the longer you can stay in, REM sleep, the less amount of sleep you need.

Manta Sleep Mask upgrades your sleep quality and gets you into REM sleep faster.

You are young. You are ambitious. You are adventurous. You want to enjoy life to the fullest and experience all that the world has to offer.

But you can’t do it unless you’re getting quality sleep in between your adventures.

You can only work hard and play hard when you’ve got an abundance of energy and vitality from a good night’s sleep...or a power nap [or two].

Using a sleep mask is a great way to improve sleep quality. The problem is, common products on the market take a one-size-fits-all approach.

Your face and nose shape are unique. Why shouldn’t the sleep mask you use be, too?

Most eye masks force you to sacrifice fit, comfort, or quality.

You shouldn’t need to make sacrifices when it comes to sleep.

So, as product designers with over 10 years of experience, who have used dozens of sleep masks in the past 15 years of our lives, we made something better.
