Our very first windmeter test

We're eventually going to post videos of all of our testing but in the interim, we needed to get an idea of what kind of resistance we're working with. We used a simple Benetech® GM816 Anemometer to measure the wind. To produce the speed of the wind, we used a corded leaf blower. Our test pillows were two identical 20" square outdoor throw pillows. One with the PillowWeight installed, one without. The actual wind resistance may be a bit higher than the numbers below as natural wind is not as constant and concentrated. The leaf blower produces a steady, focused beam of air.


PillowWeight installed:


24mph | pillow is knocked over, remaining on furniture.

50mph | pillow is forced to the ground.


PillowWeight not installed:


10mph | pillow is knocked over, remaining on furniture.

25mph | pillow is forced to the ground.
