By now, you’ve surely heard about the Snuggie. It’s that crazy blanket with sleeves that is supposed to be great for keeping you warm while you watch television or curl up with a good book. Among the many problems with this idea is the lack of love for the gadget geeks in the audience, so someone has come up with a Snuggie alternative that better suits our infatuation with technology.
You don’t want to hold your iPod while you are listening to it, right? That’s where this new travel blanket seems to come into play. It seems to be a similar idea to the Snuggie, except it has pockets built into it for holding MP3 players, cell phones, and other kinds of portable electronics.
From what I can gather, this travel blanket is being designed largely for people on commuter flights and the like, but there’s no reason why you can’t use this from the comfort of your living room or even on the bus if that’s what you want to do.
You know, aside from the very real possibility that you could be teased, abused, and ridiculed for traveling around wearing a blanket with sleeves and pockets. Just put on more clothes, won’t you? The pocket-touting blanket sells for $28.
