Concept Sunshine Pillow Brightens Your Day

Here in the northeast the sun all but disappears during the wintertime, leaving kind-hearted citizens such as myself grasping at all sources of artificial light just to keep sane. If only this sunshine pillow were available sooner, those long winter doldrums wouldn't have been so...dull.

Designed for the Koizumi International Lighting Design Competition, this sunshine pillow emits light not too dissimilar to sunlight, creating "a warm environment" and bringing the "feeling you get from the sun into your arms," sans the fusion of hydrogen into helium, of course.

Inside the pillow are numerous egg-shaped containers that are filled with battery-powered lights. This sunshine pillow certainly looks nice, but the thought of a bunch of batteries leaking whilst I slumber is a little unnerving.
