We love a ~weird~ product launch, and Sleep Pod delivered last week.

The $110 “blanket” is basically a baby swaddle for adults. Sleep Pod maker Matt Mundt is a former Apple and Harley Davidson designer on a mission to solve a personal problem: insomnia.

How it works: Sleep Pod is designed to feel like a hug. It uses a four-way stretched material that's designed to feel breathable, but that applies a gentle pressure to your body when you're snuggled inside. That pressure will reportedly help you reduce anxiety and fall asleep faster.

Some initial reactions on Product Hunt:

“I've wanted to try a weighted blanket, but I don’t find it practical to store and move a large, heavy blanket so this solution is much more appealing” - Liza

“This looks somewhat claustrophobic” - Aleksander
