pillow with built-in cooling system

Y'know how having a really nice cold pillow is perfect to lay your head on when you're trying to sleep? But then 15 minutes later, maybe you're still awake, and the pillow's all warm - which is most definitely unpleasant. Well, how about a refrigerated'd have to have a pretty quiet mechanism, but it must be doable somehow.

...and perhaps made like a diaper to absorb the drool and keep you dry and comfortable all night long.

Absolutely - I'm a real drooler myself so that would be amazing. Maybe it could even be incorporated as some kind of cooling fluid...

egnor: great link. Do you have any info on an extremely compact dehumidifier?

Egnor: Thanks for the link...that looks like it'd be really useful. <grin> I do indeed flip my pillow, or change it entirely...<I've got more pillows than blankets..>

Yeah, my current way of getting around the problem is having 2 pillows. This means I have 4 cold sides to get through, but sometimes even that isn't enough. You have to ration changes, otherwise the other sides don't get enough time to cool down...
