Philips Launches CushionSpeaker for Laptops

I think we're all agreed that laptops make mobile computing much, much easier. That said, a lot of us who like to surf from the couch end up having to improvise when it comes to a work surface.

Enter the Philips CushionSpeaker laptop stand. It does exactly what it says on the tin; it's a cushion, a speaker and laptop stand all in one. For those of you who suffer from sweaty-leg syndrome when you use cushions as make-shift couch-desks, the CushionSpeaker is made from heat resistant material. The speaker is powered by your laptop via USB and offers "an amazing sound experience" for music or movies. Peep the video below and let us know if you'd ever use something like this to watch movies from the couch or in bed.

    I wonder how much it drains the battery?

    Now if they could only pack in a fan to help the heat dissipation from underneath the laptop this product would be genius. I would definately use it with or without the fan but I think a fan or two would be helpful!

    Seems like a stupid invention to me...
    Not really something I'd buy any time soon. A good product for those commercial channels on TV.
