Seen here about to choke some poor f*** out, Jusui-Kun is a robotic bear pillow that paws at a person's face if they're snoring, encouraging them to roll over and stop cutting the z's or whatever. TOO BAD I DON'T SNORE. God, make something for busting ass in your sleep.
Okay, it's more of a "gentle tickling," according to the bear's creators. The key is to get the snorer sleeping on the pillow to move his or her head from side to side. Jusui-Kun has a built-in mic to detect the sleeper's snoring, while an equally cuddly hand monitor detects blood oxygen levels, letting the bear know when to issue one of its loving face swipes.
Oh man, can you even imagine explaining this thing to your girlfriend when she comes over AND YOU'RE IN BED WITH SOME ROBOTIC BEAR TICKLING YOUR NUTS? "...Why would it be tickling my nuts?" Why wouldn't it be -- because you wanted to know what it felt like!
Hit the jump for a short video of Chokey the Bear in action.
Thanks to IGotNothin and Tim, who agree even the threat of a robotic bear pillow is enough to keep them from snoring.
