Goron tablet cushion: Play games comfortably lying down

With this odd-looking contraption, you can now play hours of Candy Crush without the risk of your iPhone dropping on your face when you doze off.

TOKYO -- File this one under "problems you didn't know you had till now." The Goron tablet cushion from Japan lets you use your handheld device longer while lying down as it takes away the difficult task of holding said device. Basically a cushion with an adjustable arm, the Goron lets you clamp something as small as a smartphone to a monitor for your game console so you can look at the screen with your head comfortably on the cushion.

This will let you play hours of Candy Crush without the risk of your iPhone dropping on your face when you doze off. You can lie on your side if that's your preferred position. That Korean drama marathon can now be extended to a super-marathon as your hands can now hold a soda and chips rather than raise a Nexus 10 above your face.

The Goron can also be useful in a seated position as a laptop can float above your lap rather than rest on it.

The Goron tablet cushion is available now in Japan for 19,800 yen ($200). The company will also have partners selling it in Korea and Taiwan in the near future, but no other countries have been confirmed at the moment.
