Who says nano isn't accessible to the masses? Oprah Winfrey's website has an article called "Bedtime Essentials for a Good Night's Sleep." In addition to having "a calming paint color" and "the right light," Oprah's sleep specialist also recommends the following:
Ambient comfort pillows. This pillow can help increase oxygen levels in your body by up to 29 percent. "It uses a specific thing called nanotechnology, and what it does is it takes the ambient energy in the air and it pulls it in, and when you lie on it, it helps give it back to your skin which on your skin helps bring oxygen to it," he says. Ambient comfort pillows can be found in various department stores.

It's nice to see that "specific thing called nanotechnology" being put to helping America's 70 million insomniacs! This nano product is apparently fully compatible with its recommended companion products, the Indulgence Pillow, and Tempur-Pedic's Rhapsody Mattress.


  1. Oh man...this is too funny. "It pulls energy in." I guess that's why it is hard to get out of bed in the morning.

  2. I know nanotechnology has many applications, these oxygen pillows being just one example and an product I have interest in for my own home. Are Nano tubes used in this product? I have heard that they could pose a serious health risk irritating the lungs similiar to asbestos. I admit my ignorance in this area of science and would appreciate a response.
