Electric pj's operate just like your standard electric blanket, with the little wee coils running through the fabric and a little thermostat for temperature control.
The power cord could come out at one of the ankles and plug into the nearest outlet. Have one of those anti-twist thingies so you don't wake up strangling in the cord.
And think of the attachments! Clock radio, back massager, high-frequency hum to repel insects.
Possibilities are endless, really.

       wee coils? recoils..shock you into wakefulness in the morning? I could use that feature.

       small snakes?

       i don't think i would want to be wrap in something that plugged into the wall....

       Wireless heating.. would be a way to go..

       sounds oddly familiar... [link].

       Piezo pyjamas? All that tossing and turning converts to heat.   

       The aerospace industry has baked the opposite - cooling suits ... the McLaren F1 pit crews wear the cooled suits ... with links ...

       [pp]/[art] The only alternative I could come up with to plugging into the wall was a battery pack, and I thought that would be less comfortable.

       So what happens if you pee your pants at night? do you electrocute yourself?? I rather have a reachargable electric piyama so that its not connected to the wall.

       Make sure you use surge protection!

       Most of us don't pee the bed anymore, [SmartyPants], but perhaps this would work as negative reinforcement for you, to clear that little issue up.
lintkeeper2, Nov 06 2003
  

       Good riposte [lintkeeper2]. I guess with these you wouldn't really need the duvet/covers anymore? In fact, if you made the pyjamas thick and spongy (don't get excited [SmartyPants] - not for that reason!) then you would be cushioned and you wouldn't need any of the whole bed-assembly thing at all - you could sleep anywhere in warmth and comfort! My only problem though - how do you wash the electric pyjamas? Are the coils etc removable?

       Now *that's* an idea!
lintkeeper2, Nov 06 2003
  

       mmm...makes me sleepy...but a croissant before i doze off...
