Gadget of the Week: ‘turn on, tune in and drop off’

 

With most of us heading off on our summer hols *yay*,  getting comfortable while travelling and listening to music has just become easier with the Sound Asleep Travel Pillow.

It has an innovative design incorporating two speakers; is soft and squidgey, super comfy and the speakers are undetectable and unnoticeable to the touch. You may be asking – does it disturb other passengers? But cleverly it doesn’t, and the sound is just for the lucky person with the pillow.

You just simply connect to your MP3 player ‘turn on, tune in and drop off’. No headphones to worry about, it’s also great for kids who find headphones too big to wear.

Batteries are not required – the travel pillow gets all the power it needs from the connected device. And, as it’s fully portable, the handbag-sized travel pillow can be easily thrown into your beach bag for use on your sun lounger, by the pool or packed into your hand luggage for use on business trips.

The Sound Asleep Travel Pillow is ergonomically designed to gently sit around the curve of your neck and support your head. Made from high quality soft materials with a seamless finish and filled with polystyrene beads, the plush cushion keeps its shape and is soft next to the skin – perfect for a good old snooze on a long-haul flight.

Price is £15 and is available in black with a green trim.
