Danish soldiers on missions to Iraq and Kosovo are testing a new tool for combating stress: MP3 pillows that play new-age music.
The MusiCure Pillow has built-in speakers attached to an mp3-player that plays instrumentals and sounds of nature, like trickling water and chirping birds.
"We have sent 10 pillows each to Iraq and Kosovo and they are now being used by the troops," said Henrik Lundstein, of the Denmark Royal Defense College.
MusiCure is a series of music designed to have a soothing and physically relaxing effect, and stimulate the mind in a positive way, creating experiences and images. The MusiCure Pillow is designed for use in hospitals and other therapeutic situations.
