Gaming is serious to a lot of people, but unfortunately what seems to be harmless can affect you if you’re not careful. You can have a nice gaming chair, a comfy spot on the couch, or even use your own bed for your gaming sessions but unknowingly develop what gamers call “Gamer lean/Shrimping” or “Gamer neck”. Leave it to gamers to come up with a solution to help prevent this problem, Say hello to The Valari!
The Valari has developed a gaming pillow that’s designed to improve your posture while gaming as well as make your sessions more comfortable by providing support for your elbows and forearms.
There are two types of pillows available, Rare Edition and Legendary. I want to thank The Valari for sending me over one of their Legendary Edition pillows that’s in Horror Fuel colors and features an embroidered image of an Oni Mask (I love Japanese folklore, so sue me.). I’ve put it to the test while marathoning a game and no BS, it was comfortable! My carpal tunnel is acting up at the moment but the pillow makes it comfortable to rest my hands and wrists on it.
The buckle on the back is nice as it allows for storage, many users actually wear the pillow and clip it in the back, I’m not small enough to try that but I was told by the folks over at The Valari that they’re working on developing adjustable straps for future pillows to allow users to wear them. You can also buy just the pillow covers, the pillow is not included but I’m sure you can fill it up with shredded foam, which you can buy bags of it online super cheap if you’re concerned about prices.
The best part about these pillows, it’s just not for gaming! You can definitely use them while watching videos on your phone or tablet, and reading which I have for some late-night reading! Whether you’re a casual or competitive gamer, an avid reader, or binging a show or movies, The Valari pillows are for you OR for the gamer, reader, or Bingewatcher in your life!
