We've seen a few pillows with tech-based insides before. Though most of them look like some sort of space age, un-snuggly contraption, as opposed to this cuddly pillow meant to reduce stress. This heartbeat pillow doesn't just pound out a rhythmic, it actually adjusts itself and changes things up, just like a real heart.
Though it would have been easier to create a product that simply produces a repeating beat or vibration to mimic a heartbeat, this pillow creates an entirely unique heartbeat rhythm each time it's turned on and gradually changes, algorithmically modeling the heartbeat in a deep meditative state. This isn't a pre-recorded rhythm and this isn't a "heartbeat sound." This is a physical heartbeat that realistically changes over time.
We're quite curious about the product and it might just be what you need at the end of a long day to relax, though we hear loved ones or pets provide the same thing, though most animals don't take to well to being your pillow.
They're available in 2 sizes (10" and 15") over at Think Geek starting at $34.99.
