Plufl – The World’s First Dog Bed For Humans

Inspired by the comfort of the classic dog bed, a couple of obviously extremely bored university students designed Plufl, the world’s first dog bed for humans.

If you’re thinking that the Plufl is just an oversized dog bed, you’re technically correct, but according to its creators, Noah Silverman and Yuki Kinoshita, it’s much more than that. In their own words, the Plufl was engineered “to provide the optimal napping experience” and “maximize comfort and foster a sense of security, delivering relief for those who have ADHD, stress, and anxiety-related issues”. However we thing that it’s all bullshit and these students made it because it’s funny and weird.

Noah and Yuki launched Plufl on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform, and it was a stunning success. The Plufl blown past its funding goal of $25,000, securing $290,657 from 799 backers. Even though it’s not the cheapest dog bed in the world at $400, the Plufl seems to have quite a lot of fans already.

Unlike an actual dog bed, the Plufl is allegedly much more comfortable, thanks to the memory foam cushioning and the reinforced edge that allows users to rest their heads on it when they want. They also added straps and included a bag with each Plufl, so that it can be easily stored or transported. Because obviously you would want to bring it with yourself everywhere you travel, right?

“The oval shape encourages fetal position (the most common and comfortable sleep form according to research), while the thick pillow border allows users to tuck their hands and feet, fostering a feeling of security,” the official description reads. “The orthopedic memory foam provides ample support and the faux fur is soft and calming to the touch.”
