It’s starting to get cooler here in Colorado already. Mornings at altitude already require a jacket. That means that before you know it I’ll be channeling my dad and yelling at people about turning the furnace up too high and urging them to use blankets instead. Maybe if our blankets weren’t the itchy crap my wife tends to buy, people would actually use them. I’d definitely use this blinky space blanket.
It’s not the silver reflective sort mind you. This is a plush fleece throw that has an astronaut on it, along with 18 LEDs around it that flash intermittently. The LEDs are supposed to make it seem as if you are looking at a night sky.
The LEDs glow and flash tanks to a trio of AA batteries, and you must remove the battery compartment if you plan to wash it. It measures in at 45″ x 60″, so it should cover most of you. ThinkGeek has this blinky blanket for $39.99 right now.
