Every night in my house, there is a massive pillow fight. It’s not the schoolgirl tussle that many of you may be picturing. It’s a fight between my husband’s snoring and a slew of pillows… the ones over his head, the ones over mine.
Instead of fighting with his pillows, or possibly his spouse, Daryoush Bazargani built himself a better pillow. Reuters says that this professor of computer science at the University of Rostock invented a pillow that can help you stop snoring.
It doesn’t pinch your nose or even drown out the sounds of sawing wood; it’s attached to a computer which tells it to shift your head until the noise stops.
Pretty cool, and also bizarre. If only we could come up with a pillow, a sofa or something that could cure cancer. Baby steps, I guess. I’d even settle for a pillow that can help me not work as much.
