A new pillow from Brookstone is looking to revolutionize how you watch TV in bed.
At first glance it may look like an ordinary pillow, but inside this memory foam pillow is a set of speakers you can use to listen to music while you're on your way to dreamland. The pillow connects using a wireless transmitter.
Controls on the side of the pillow can adjust the volume, and you can set a sleep timer to have the tunes turn off when you think you'll be asleep. The battery pack can be removed from the inside of the pillow for charging, and the outside cover can be removed when it needs a wash.
I had the opportunity to spend a little time with the pillow at a press event Monday evening, and I have to say I liked it. While definitely a bit heavier than your average pillow, memory foam padding on either side of the speakers prevents you from feeling the speakers inside, and actually make for a comfortable pillow.
The pillow is expected to be released in the Spring of 2013, and will retail for $129.
Would you use a pillow with built-in speakers?
