Know anyone who has trouble sleeping? Forget those mini-water fountains and thunderstorm CDs.
Check out this new pillow from Toshiba Japan. Dubbed “Oto Makura” (literally: noise pillow), this headrest has stereo speakers built in that will play ambient noise, talk radio, anything really – the wireless infrared base station will transmit the signal of whichever device you choose (CD player, television, radio, etc.).
How is it different from American-made sound pillows, let alone simply putting speakers on your nightstand? Toshiba uses newly patented “bone conduction speakers” that promise to insert the sound into your dreams.
