A Forbes report details the Dreampad from Integrated Listening Systems, a device initially created to be a sleep aid for those with complex sleep difficulties.
As someone who cannot shut down the spongy central processing facility in my skull, the Dreampad seems like a solid replacement for my white noise machine or the speakers across the room. The Dreampad is not a pillow with speakers in it, as I may have implied. Rather, it is a system of transducers that deliver music straight into your head through vibration.
Unlike headphones or posting speakers next to your bed, the Dreampad transducers pump the music right into your nervous system through vibrations to the inner ear. This triggers a response that kicks your brain into relaxation mode and helps calm the mind. That’s the intent at least.
