Invention of the Week #14:

Latest posts by Rich Sloan (see all)

This week’s featured invention is “PODillow”, from inventor Anthony Calvert. 


Anthony works with our invention commercialization partner, Invention Home, to help him find marketing/licensing opportunities for his invention.  Anthony created, prototyped and produced a unique product to address a major “pain in the neck”.


PODillow is a patent-pending, trademarked product which offers individuals a more comfortable way to lie when catching some rays or working out the kinks in the back during a massage. This unique product allows individuals to relax in comfort without constantly having to readjust their head position. 


Perfect for use at the pool, beach or massage establishment, the product has a washable pillow top for supreme comfort.   Storage compartments are formed into the foam base of the product so sunbathers can be sure valuables like MP3 players, cell phones and wallets are kept safe and sound while they snooze.  Integral air channels in the base and the open center of the pillow enables face-down relaxation.


Beyond tanning, I’ve always wished I could have a massage table at home so my neck wasn’t craned to one side or the other and this might be the answer!
