Thanks for the hunt @ryandawidjan!
After the success of the Gravity Weighted Blanket, I was determined to continue my mission to help the world relax a little easier. Today, I’m launching Moonpod!
Moonpod is a lightweight beanbag engineered to make you feel like you’re floating. It’s the perfect complement to the the Gravity Blanket, and I’m truly excited to share it with you today -- we just launched on Kickstarter.
I promise you it is actually the most comfortable thing you will ever sit, work, or nap in.
Big thanks to @ryandawidjan for hunting!
Been working with @johnnyfio for a while on this amazing product, and we're incredibly excited to bring it to life on Kickstarter!
Happy to answer any questions about the product -- just reply here :)
@ryandawidjan @johnnyfio @gregmschwartz Greg - this looks amazing!
@ryandawidjan @johnnyfio @travelintweeter Thanks for the support Brandon!
Great job!! 😊 Will check it out Does it ship to India?
@ayush_chandra thank you for the support! Unfortunately for launch, to ensure everyone gets their order on time, we cannot ship to India :(
This looks awesome!
@braynelson thanks Braydon! super excited to launch it :)
Very cool looking product, looks like could be great alternative to sitting in my desk chair all day!
@adamkornfield thanks for the note Adam!!
Please consider shipping to Europe!
@pugson Hi Wojtek, Europe is definitely in our plans! We want to ensure that we can safely deliver products to all of our backers before we expand. Thanks again for all of you support!
Don't trust this team to get you an amazing product. I had a lot of issues getting my Gravity Blanket and they were completely unresponsive for 5 months after they said they had delivered it to me (they had not). I was an original backer on Kickstarter and was left behind. It was a horrible experience. I don't recommend using these guys products, they are a marketing machine with no operations or customer success processes.
@dantasman Hi Daniel - We hear you, and we can assure you that the Moon Pod team (different from Gravity) is implementing new strategies, and taking the proper precautions to ensure that Moon Pod backers have a much better customer experience. I'm happy to answer any additional questions!

@dantasman @gregmschwartz I wish there was at least an apology in that reply! No one knows the truth but a sorry would have gone a long way in getting the backer. It definitely looks like some big goof up that you guys did in the comments section both on this product and the Gravity Blanket.
Word of caution for the community!
@kaycee hey Krishna, thanks for your concern. The Gravity team did its best to fulfill the orders that came through on Kickstarter. The team apologizes to every backer who had a less than ideal experience, Daniel included. With a different team and different processes, we’re working really hard to ensure that this campaign runs smoothly! Let me know if you have any questions about Moon Pod!

@gregmschwartz Sorry but in all that I mentioned, I forgot to mention that the product looks great! Wish you all the very best! Really hoping that this product pivots the bad experiences from the past.
@kaycee thanks for the kind words, Krishna!
Strongly recommend reading some of the 3000+ kickstarter comments on the Gravity blanket, the campaign that existed before this did. It seems to be an endless stream of people complaining they never received the blanket and were ultimately denied any refund (or even a response). The final product that shipped was significantly smaller than the dimensions promised. The dimensions of the actual blanket are identical to weighted blankets sold on alibaba wholesale, etc, suggesting product wasn't even manufactured for the campaign at all. I don't condone the witch hunt nature that some backers have taken into their own hands, but there's no denying that the satisfaction was exceptionally low for the vast majority of people that backed the prior campaign (myself included).
@runsammrun Gravity has 60,000+ and growing customers that love the product. The kickstarter was completed 100%.
@johnnyfio terrible response
@runsammrun Thanks for the note, and happy to discuss some of your points above. To be clear, Moon Pod is a separate company from Gravity. We’ve made deliberate decisions to do things differently. For example, we're shipping Moon Pod to only the 48 contiguous United States in order to ensure that Moon Pod is delivered safely to all of our backers. Additionally, our manufacturers are ready to handle this campaign and the volume of backers that we're expecting. Additionally, we have a customer support staff ready to handle all of our backers requests.
Looks really comfortable guys. Perfect for my back. And so simplistic. It could be an Apple standard product :)
@ana_mouratidou hey Ana - thank you so much for your support and your flattering design comparison :) It truly is an incredible feeling to sit in a Moon Pod!
GO AWAY FROM THIS PROJECT. I backed up their first kickstarter project (Gravity blanket) and here is my experience:
- delay in delivering the product
- customer support not answering
- product not respecting the description. Size is too small and they didn't even notice us by mail or anything.
I told them that by law you have a month to return product and get a refund and they invented something so I couldn't do it.
I have lost my money and worst, I will not backup any more projects on Kickstarter because of them.
I am not used to comment on PH but I was so disappointed that I don't want any more people to lose their money.
Looks really cool! I wish the video showed how stable the reclining/sitting position is - it always cuts away a little too soon.
For anyone who wants to enjoy the zero gravity experience in the meantime, I highly recommend looking up the zero gravity patio chairs on amazon. Only $50, and comfortable enough to fall asleep in. I do most of my work in one, and it's wonderful. Less versatile than this bean bag, but no reason not to have both :)
I like it
Don't. believe that it. Has all the medical benefits it claims.
@sherri_craig Thanks for the comment. We made no claims about Moon Pod, just that we think users feel amazing and relaxed when using it! Additionally, we mention that we designed it around the idea that it simply mimics the sensations of flotation therapy.
