For the technologically-inclined surfer who already has that
wireless Tablet PC surfboard there's now the Wave Pillow,
an Internet-connected pillow that vibrates in time to the kind of waves that are at the beach that morning (or
afternoon, depending on the hours you keep) so you can literally feel how heavy the surf is. You just connect it to
your PC at home, use the included software to designate which beach you want to keep tabs on, and the Wave Pillow
automatically grabs the wave info off the Wave Buoy website, where it gets translated into vibrations.
