DreamPad is a sleep aid that uses your skull as a sound conductor.
Music is a great way to help you get to sleep, but it can also be a serious annoyance to your partner. Headphones are an uncomfortable solution, but what if there was another way to get sounds directly into your ear? DreamPad is a pillow that uses your skull as a conduit to deliver soothing music straight to your inner ear.
The $179 pillow is extremely thin, which means you can combine the benefits of bedtime music with the comfort of your own favorite pillow. You can choose from five different music programs to download, which are also available on a pre-loaded Sony MP3 player as an optional extra ($70). With names like “Tranquil Landscapes” and “Seaside Strings,” we’re confident you know what kind of music to expect.
According to CNET , the pillow is meant to work regardless of what your favorite sleeping position is. Even if you use your hand as a secondary pillow, the device should be able to send vibrations all the way to your inner ear. If you can justify the price, and have been in search for a better way to get to sleep, the DreamPad pillow might be exactly what you need to counter tossing and turning in the night.
