Urban Tool's "perCushion" pillowphone

Chris Ziegler

Alright, this thing isn't technically a phone -- it's just a Bluetooth handsfree -- but we're not sure when we're next going to have the opportunity to whip out the term "pillowphone," so we thought it was in everyone's best interest to use it here. The "perCushion" concept getting passed around at CeBIT this year takes the sound pillow concept one step further, making it even easier than usual to nod off while chatting with boring peeps thanks to an integrated loudspeaker and a rather comfy-looking design. Power is provided by a rechargeable battery so you don't have any unsightly wires following the accessory into bed with you. Maybe designer Urban Tool puts it best when it says that the perCushion takes us back to a time when "communication with a close friend stood for something emotional and touching" -- and sleepy, Urban Tool. Don't forget that part. Look for the perCushion to make the courageous leap from concept to production in 2008.
