Bath Air Pillow Smartphone Holder — "Waterproof, inflatable cushion for mobile devices"


From the website:


Take your phone or other mobile device into the bath without having to hold it in both hands for fear of dropping it in the water. You can lean back on the inflatable cushion and enjoy browsing on your phone. You only need to use your hands when you want to change the screen.


The arm hooks around over your shoulder and lets you look at your mobile device, safely sealed in a waterproof case. The arm length is adjustable and the splash-proof cover should hold most standard-sized smartphones. 

All you need do is blow it up with air and then slide your device into the case. Out of the bath, you can also use the air pillow as a head cushion for taking a nap. You can even use it like some of Thanko's other handy "lazy" gadgets, lying down flat on the cushion so you can read or look at the screen hands-free while relaxing.


Features and Details:

  • Colors: white, pink, gray
  • Pillow: 460 x 220 x 90mm (18.1 x 8.7 x 3.5")
  • Arm: max. extension: 560mm (22")
  • Device holder case for smartphones max. 160 x 82mm (6.3 x 3.2")
  • Instructions: Japanese (but easy to use)

I have to guess that the towel in the water might be to assist in drawing attention away from body parts that some might find more attention-worthy than the crappily-designed plastic inflatable disaster-waiting-to-happen (you are SO right, Kay) thing, and onto the thing, which they would like to convince us we need to purchase.

I wonder why the bath people aren't wearing their anti-sag, -flab, -etc., beautifying and youthenizing facegear while enjoying their electronics? But, I see in the last illustration that she is letting gravity deal with that, so that's okay, then.

Why is the girl wearing a towel in the water??

Does this look like an accident waiting to happen? One shifts position, blam, the pillow is out from behind the back and the precious iPad-Thingy is floating face up. Just saying, not criticizing the messenger.

If you cant leave your tech behind for half an hour to relax in the bath, somethings gone seriously wrong.

Good thing there are instructions, otherwise I can't imagine what I'd use it for in the tub....
