Calling all techies (and non-techies)! I recently had the amazing opportunity to sit-down with inventor Shelton McCoy. If you don’t know who Shelton McCoy is, you should. McCoy’s brainchild –the Kushion – is a revolutionary Blue-tooth headrest that delivers a high-quality sound output, handsfree cell phone technology and a charging station all in one. Having experienced the Kushion firsthand, I can assure you that this pillow is the real deal.
Kushion is a sleek, black, high-tech wireless pillow with many capabilities. Unlike cell phones that heat up after continuous use, this pillow stays comfortable to the touch. With its 8 hour battery life, the Kushion has the ability to recharge any USB chargeable device and the Bluetooth technology allows you to use your phone even if the phone is 25 feet away from you. In addition, the Kushion can sync with up to 4 other pillows to share music.
While McCoy isn’t your typical serial inventor, two things have always been a constant in his life – a protective instinct and music. As a former high profile bodyguard for celebrities, such as Carrie Underwood and Ananda Lewis, McCoy enjoyed the best of both worlds. But for this fierce protector, his journey was just beginning. Today, as the inventor of Kushion, McCoy is seeing to it that we are all able to enjoy technology in a safe and responsible way.
In fact, McCoy’s protective nature is the very reason he thought of Kushion in the first place. When McCoy witnessed his teenage daughter placing her cell phone in her head scarf one evening, he sprung into action. As he contemplated all of the risks associated with sleeping with a mobile, McCoy saw the potential in this untapped market. That same night, McCoy began thinking of ways he could prevent his daughter from continuing to sleep with her phone and the Kushion was born.
Four years ago, a chance meeting at the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, North Carolina brought this premier gadget to the masses. After many months of research, determination and resilience by McCoy, he partnered with Comfort Revolution, a leader in memory foam technology. Kushion is now sold online through Comfort Revolution and is available to anyone who enjoys listening to music, speaking handsfree on their cell phone, and charging their phone from the comfort of their bed.
As a special gift to Tastefully Inspired Blog, McCoy is providing all of our readers with a special promotional code – LITAF – to receive $100 off the Kushion. For more information about the Kushion or to purchase this product, please visit kushion.com.
