Would you believe us if we told you that you could make your worries just by hugging a pillow? Sounds absurd, right? Well, perhaps not. 

Introducing Fufuly, an anxiety-relieving pillow that uses gentle periodic pulsation as its main therapeutic component.  

The cloud-shaped pillow was created by the Japanese robotics company Yukai Engineering. When you hold it, it feels like it is breathing. It accomplishes this by gradually and gently expanding and contracting while you hold it, which aids in training your body to do the same. It is intended to aid folks who are anxious or under a lot of stress in becoming calm and at ease when necessary.  

It’s very simple to use Fufuly. Simply hug it. Unlike a typical smart device, there’s no app to control or monitor it. The pillow has three operating modes, wherein you get the usual regular and deep profiles, while the third one is made to help you relax and is based on everyday relaxation breathing practices.
