Privacy Pillow – nothing says paranoia more than a pillow with a hole in it

privacypillow

So this guy rushes up to us in the street, and he’s like…’do you want a pillow?’ And we’re like, ‘sure why not?’ And he’s like, ‘it’s a special type of pillow.’ And we’re all like, ‘really, sounds cool’. Then he opens the bag and we see it. Mind blown.

The Privacy Pillow is a perfectly ordinary soft touch pillow with a brushed polyester cover. Only it’s not. Buried deep inside the thing is a secret leatherette compartment, which at 24cm x 32cm is just big enough to hide your tablet computer, but not enough for your laptop (unless it’s tiny).

Yes, it’s either a genius idea or completely potty, which is actually how we like them. For one thing, we’re thinking why bother with all that secret compartment stuff when you could just stuff the tablet into the cover and be done with it? And then we’re thinking, why not just stash it under the mattress? And so on. But for those of you with an adventurous heart, this is probably the best $29.95 you’re ever going to spend. Ever.

    You just know there are some people looking at this and thinking “what a great place to keep my gun to protect myself from those home invaders I am sure are coming to get me!”

    (and yes, doing so would be a horrid idea…)
