Pillow fights have never been so much fun until Pillow-Bash arrived. Inside the normal pillows are pressure sensors that react when the opponent is struck, according to the amount of harmless force applied. The sensors transmit a signal to an amplifier and speaker box, which contains a comprehensive set of pre- recorded random impact sounds.

So, start bashing each other, to the accompaniment of hammers hitting pipes, logs falling unto barrels, and bricks bouncing off tin roofs. (Inspired by a youtube pillow fight video)

       [according to the amount of harmless force applied]   

       Sounds impossible, if force is invloved, how can it be harmless? If pressure sensors or accellerometers are used, there will be large impacts.

       Any chance of linking that video?   

       Nice idea, but make it play awesome dream sound effects so that when you toss and turn during a bad dream, suspensful music plays. Maybe some sad music when it detects tears, and maybe a nice funky bass line when it detects repetitive motion. :P

       Holy Hell [evilpenguin], you are an GENIUS. A pillow for a very practical reason. Now you can get that rhythm to ya all synched up and all.

       I'd probably have so much fun bashing my own head with my pillow to hear all the different sounds that I'd miss out on a perfect opportunity.   

       <sees twitch bending over to tie shoe, launches sneak attack at po and, Flarp! After a complete miss hits elf on arse with follow-through>

       How about just a brick in a pillow? that would create its own sound effects.....
