Household gizmo and doo-dad store Brookstone thinks it has a solution to keep even the slovenliest of slobs from losing their remote controls or leaving them out of reach: A $30 pillow that hooks up with your TV remote, allowing you to flip through channels without ever leaving the couch, you lazy, lazy person.
The Pillow Remote Control has databases containing codes for over 500 remote control devices. Its easy-to-click fabric buttons make changing channels a breeze. Power-saving auto shutoff feature shuts off remote functions after 60 seconds of inactivity. Remote has a wide-range transmitter with infrared LED built in. A fun way to watch TV or home theater, and a real conversation-starter. Uses 2 AAA batteries (not included).
There’s also an “activate” button that lets you flip the remote itself on and off, so the pillow still retains some pillowlike functionality.
