Smart PJs getting worldwide media attention

We first reported on Juan Murdoch and Smart PJs before Christmas. It seems that the scannable pajamas are creating something of a buzz.

Here is the link to a video that appeared yesterday on Slate.com: http://www.slate.com/blogs/trending/2013/04/25/bedtime_story_pajamas_barcode_covered_bed_wear_links_with_app_to_read_bedtime.html.

Kind of snarky, if you ask me, but it was Oscar Wilde who said, "There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about." Even the headline, "Creepy or Awesome? New Pajamas Hardwired With Bedtime Stories"concedes that Murdoch, an agent with Keller-Williams East Idaho, had a unique idea.

Murdoch said that while he has yet to recoup his initial investment, the phone is ringing off the hook. "It's going nuts," he said Thursday. "I've done three interviews with broadcasting companies from the UK today!" He's also been contacted by the Today Show.
