While You Were Trying To Get Some Sleep On The Bus…

Someone stole your bag, kids sitting next seat were screaming, the nap in the bus sucked and now you have a muscle pull in the neck! Ah so many reasons, but the situation still remains unresolved; how do you catch your forty winks during a commute? Easy, you need a Napper! It’s a set of comfy hooded shawl with concealed earphones (that work with Bluetooth), combined with a Bluetooth lock for your luggage, and NapApp. Intrigued? Hit the jump for more info…

  • Napper aims especially at sleeping in public transport.
  • It consists of a hood, whose padding makes it comfortable to lean against window panes.
  • It‘s wide cut and the scarf make it possible for you to shield yourself from the environment and create your own private cocoon.
  • Bluetooth headphones are integrated in the hood, which, together with software for the mobile phone, provide sound to fall asleep with.
  • The entire system is foldable into a compact bag and can be easily used for daily commuting as well as for longer.
  • The hood‘s inlay is padded with 3Mesh material, which has a soft cushioning effect and high shock absorption against the vibrating windows.
  • On the outer side of the headphones is covered in Sorbothane, a plastic foil which has noise absorbing properties.
  • Inside the hood, Napcap‘are integrated Bluetooth headphones which, together with the traveler’s mobile phone, play music, send the wake-up alarm and the warning signal, in case the traveler’s luggage is moved.
  • The headphones can easily be taken out of the hood, when you want to wash it.
  • Small LED lights on the headphones give information about the remaining battery life and Bluetooth connection. The headphones lithium-polymer-battery is charged via USB, which is integrated in the headphone and can simply be plugged into your computer. There is also a mini-jack on the headphones, if you want to use them with a device which doesn’t support Bluetooth.
  • To ensure a carefree sleep, the hood NapCap comes together with the luggage lock NapSecure. It doesn‘t only lock your luggage, but is connect to your mobile phone via Bluetooth. If the luggage should be moved away from its owner further than one meter, he will be warned by an alarm on his headphones, his mobile phone and the lock itself.
  • The lock can be opened by using your mobile phone, but also through a mechanical lock, in case your battery is low or your phone is lost.
  • The Bluetooth lock is charged, same as the headphones, using an integrated USB port. The luggage lock and the headphones communicate via Bluetooth with the software NapApp which can be installed as well on touchscreen as on keyboard mobile phones.
  • Next to the control of the luggage lock, it contains a alarm clock which helps to wake up at according to your preferred time, location (if the mobile supports GPS) or sleep stage. With the help of a reaction game, which should be played directly after waking up, the software analyses how recreational your nap was and whether or not you should shorten or extend your next nap. Furthermore the software has a build in voice recorder, to capture the ideas you have just before dozing off.

    Thanks so much for your interest! My partner is working on a pre-sign-up page. I’ll let you know as soon as it goes online!

    • Alison says:

      Has this come out yet?

    • Kate Clack says:

      I would buy one right now. In fact I was hoping they were available as I have a trip coming up later this month and this would be ideal! Please let me know if you ever make them or want to do them individually. Thanks!

  • Cynthia Moed-Ring says:


    I came across the napcap on pinterest and wondered where I could buy one. Would be awesome both on planes (the pillows they have can be dirty, nice to have your own thing!), trains, buses etc.

    And a facebook-page would be great! To be able to follow the progress 🙂

    Greetings from Finland!

    This would be great for people and kids with sensory processing disorder or people with autism / aspergers. My son has both and background noise can be very distracting to them. This would give them a calming place to retreat to in public. A hoodie with the Bluetooth speakers would be cool too. Love your product. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

  • Simone says:

    Thanks Erica! We’ve made some progress lately as we found a new producer. Hopeing to share some food news soon!

  • Tiffany says:

    Great product! I would buy several! I am a migraine sufferer and would use them when I was in public and had a migraine. Also, I am so sensitive to bright lights, I would use it sitting in doctors offices, or just having to wait anywhere that was bright for a long time, or loud…I could just plug in my music, or talk on my phone with more privacy. Great idea. Go on “Shark Tank”. I know several people who would buy this product. Live in or travel to MS, LA, TN, AL, FL, MA, & PA and overseas…military personnel also….we like to sleep or rest or be incognito at times. lol

    add me to the list of I NEED THIS!!!

  • Krystal says:

    Put this on kickstarter!!

  • LeAnn says:

    I’d buy it without the alarm thing. I travel a lot and always choose a window seat on flights. I always wish I had something simple to rest my head against so I don’t have to pack an extra sweater (for pillow use). This is brilliant!

  • sara says:

    I would love this for my backpacking trip in 2016!!!!!

    How has skymall not picked u up yet.

  • Janet d says:

    Here’s an idea for you…
    What if you put the directions or pattern in an Etsy store? You probably could make a good income from home just by doing this.
    Maybe have sources for the Bluetooth and locking system, but I would imagine that most are interested in the napcap part.
