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.
