Great ideas always seem to be played around with and tried to improve or improvise upon.
Such is the case with hammocks. Traditional hammocks from Central Mexico have been in use for over a 1000 years yet today we still attempt to improve or adapt upon.
Here are a few of the more 'unique' ideas that have sprouted up in recent years.
1. Foot Hammock: For when the floor is just not supportive enough for your feet while at your desk then you have the foot hammock! This device attaches to the sides of your desk while a small foot sized hammock hangs under your desk. You can use these in a working or relaxing position, so sit and kick your feet up and
2. Flight Hammock: It might be called a hammock, but it looks more like an inflatable cushion. However, it seems to do the trick for providing some extra comfort on flights. This ‘hammock’ attaches to your tray table and hangs low in your footwell. This allows you to sit in a more varied range of positions and hopefully find something a little more comfortable than usual so you can rest and sleep easier.
3. Head Hammock: Another product designed with the flight traveller in mind. Sleeping in a sitting position is often a difficult one especially when you head keeps dropping forward and jerking you away. This little head hammock attaches to your headrest and a padded cushion sits directly under your chin. This keeps your head in position against the headrest preventing the usual head dropping and waking experience.
4. Hammock Hot Tub: This hammock made a big splash recently due to the fact it is a hammock and hot tub in one! Made from high strength waterproof canvas this hammock can be hung like a normal hammock and then filled with water. An optional water heating system can be added so you can sit in hot tub warm water in your hammock. A unique experience for sure, but possibly a bit cumbersome with the water heating system in tow.
