I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Polar Bear pillow that will wake me up every five minutes with a slap on the face. This new device called “Jukusui-kun,” meaning “Deep Sleep,” was designed by a Japanese professor to help sufferers of sleep apnea stop snoring throughout the night. A polar bear-shaped pulse-oxygen meter is attached to the snorer’s hand while the person lays his or her head on another polar bear with a microphone attached. Once you’re sound asleep, the device will recognize when your oxygen level has dropped and your noise level has increased, resulting in a little tap on the head if you’re snoring gets out of hand. Whether you love sleeping with polar bears, or you are no longer interested in a good night’s rest, make sure to get your claws on this ingenious device when (if) it hits U.S. stores! [Jezebel]
I think the person who made this pillow has been spying on me. For some reason, I seem to attract a lot of men who love the outdoors. Me? Not so much. I don’t like sleeping in a tent. I don’t want to spend more time with bears, bugs and snakes. I don’t want to get used to going to the bathroom behind a tree and wiping with leaves. I refuse. But there have been a few times in the courtship process that I slightly exaggerated how much I would be “into going camping sometime.” Thats BS. I’ll never go camping. My approved outdoorsy activities include short bike rides, picnics in Central Park and tanning at the beach. That’s it. I need to put this pillow on my bed to soften the blow. That way, Bear Grylls will know who he’s really getting into bed with. An indoor girl. Oh, and this pillow is eco friendly, so at least I can keep pretending to be environmentally conscious.
In the market for a new pillowcase? Here’s one that claims to make you prettier overnight. Right. Beautyzzz Natural Silk Pillowcase claims that it “works naturally with skin and hair to make nighttime beauty routines more effective.” Since it’s made of skin-friendly elements (hypoallergenic silk) instead of cotton, all those creams and moisturizers you put on before bedtime, apparently, will work even better. Plus, the company promises that you can say goodbye to bed head and wrinkle lines on your face. So, for $47.00 would you shell out? [Grazia] Keep reading »
This ain’t your average throw pillow, ladies. Despite what the “Girlfriend’s Lap” pillow looks like, the makers swear there is nothing dirty about this lap pillow. If you are questioning what exactly you are looking at, no worries, you’re not alone. As the name suggests, you are indeed looking at a pillow in the shape of a woman’s legs made from urethane foam. I am not a foam expert, but apparently this kind of foam has a skin-like texture, so minus the lack of a torso you might never notice that you are taking a cat nap on a fake lap. Of course, the mini skirt does add that extra special dose of reality, so maybe not. What, you thought we added the mini? Oh no no, the “Girlfriend’s Lap” pillow comes with the polyester skirt, but you can strip it off, if you’d like. Perv.

Usually, when I write about a beauty product I know whether I am hailing it as the greatest thing since sliced bread or as a WTF? With the copper-infused pillow cover, well, I just don’t know. Apparently you can get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet by sleeping on a copper-threaded pillow.
According to the peeps at Cupron, who make the copper infused pillow (as well as copper infused gloves and eye masks), copper has been used since ancient Egyptian times for its “antimicrobial properties.” How this translates to less wrinkles, I have no idea, but Cupron’s own clinical trials have shown that people who use the pillow are more likely to see a reduction in them.
Bottom line: it might not work, but if you need a new pillow anyway you might as well try and be a beauty pioneer. [$37.99, Cupron Cosmetic Skin Appearance-Enhancing Satin Pillowcase,CupronSales.com] Keep reading »
Lady funbags have gotten even more fun! We’ve told you about the mannequin MP3 player, but now, thanks to tit men, the volume has been turned up on ta-tas. A new portable pillow has been made in the shape of an ample bosom. These plush double D’s also contain speakers that hook up to your iPod, television, computer, or any other noise maker with a headphone jack. The tit and tunes combo could get any man into the groove or, as their slogan says, “Sink back into our generous domes of sound.” At roughly $25 bucks a pair, they are definitely the cheapest fake boobies out there.
