iPhone Whale Emoticon Pillow Is Cuter Than the Fail Whale

If there's one thing I love, it's geeking up my house with quirky accessories. If I had infinite time and resources, I'd probably install an Enter key for a doorbell or purchase a table made out of partially melted computer parts. But these whale pillows are not only very cute and cuddly, but are also a little geeky.

The pillow is based on a whale meme, which can be made out on an iPhone by pressing return a few times and using Eastern-style emoticon faces. The 50cm throw pillows encapsulate six of the classic faces these iPhone whales make within people's text messages: happy, angry (or confused?), indifferent, sleepy, loved up, exasperated and irritated.

The pillows come in green and gray, just like actual iPhone messages, and wil set you back $18 at Infmetry. Maybe for the next collection they could do message whale favorites, like the Harry Potter whale, Free Willy or Nyan Whale.

Perhaps once you've bought one of the whales, you could make it more at home with the original iPhone app and Mac icon cushions, or an iPod duvet set.
