Vibrating pillows get us up, shut us up

Even pillows seem to be getting the tech-treatment these days, with a couple of useful vibration-based inventions that seem like they should have been made years ago.

Just out on the market, the Alarm Clock Pillow from Vessel let’s you wake up quietly without disturbing anyone else. Just set the alarm on the side, and it wakes you up with vibrations!

The Anti-Snoring Pillow from Japan’s legendary France Bed (yes, it’s Japanese). With a built in sensor, the pillow detects snoring and then disrupts the offender to stop it with vibrations. for those who really want to know more, there’s even an audio out to record just how bad it really is.
