POST MY PILLOW – Write, erase, write. [link]

How many times has it happened that you thought of something in the night before going to sleep and forgot it the very next day? Well, with this write on pillow, I bet, such an event won’t occur again.

Presenting the ‘Post my Pillow’ write on pillow from Veinticuatrodientes design studio for the lazy geek, who feels bored enough to go to the nearest table to get his notepad. Now, all he has to do note down something important is pull out the pen from the side of the pillow and pen it down on the… err, pillow. The pen, which comes with some kinda special ink which can simply be washed with water, is shipped along with the pillow. It’s not a fun stuff for just the geeks

It sounds great but my only concern is how comfortable is pillow is!
