The New "Pillow Talk"

Two beating hearts... Just a world apart

Scottish designer Joanna Montgomery is a 23-year-old who attended Dundee University and finished with a First Class BSC in digital interaction design. She started her own company, Little Riot, to develop Pillow Talk, a product first brought to our attention on Sexcerpts.

How it works:

Pillow Talk helps you connect with your long-distance lover via a heartbeat through a pillow, whether you're in separate households, cities or countries. According to the Pillow Talk website:

Each person has a ring sensor they wear to bed at night, and a flat fabric panel which slots inside their pillowcase. The ring wirelessly communicates with the other person's pillow; when one person goes to bed, their lover's pillow begins to glow softly to indicate their presence. Placing your head on the pillow allows you to hear the real-time heartbeat of your loved one.

The result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them.

Pillow Talk is not available yet, but is being further developed by Montgomery. Looks like long-distance love just got a little closer.

What readers are saying:

Kathleen M.: Kinda cool, but the glow needs to go. Light makes it harder to get a good night's sleep. Maybe they could integrate a switch that turns off the glow when you put your head on it.

Jennie M.: I had something very similar to this for our kids...mothers heartbeat...really was nice, helped them adjust to normal sounds, etc. after birth.

John B.: So much for the cool side of the pillow. :/

Shaunie L.: What a great idea for military families/couples!!!! I love it!!!!

Irene C.: This is genious! I would totally order this for my boyfriend. He's working oversees right now and it sucks being away from him. Especially at night.

Marjorie D.: My husband is gone for weeks, months at a time, this is an amazing way to feel close to him. Hurry!!!
Crystal H.: I think this is a great idea. My boyfriend is in the air force stationed in Wyoming and I live in new jersey. He comes home to visit when he can but I miss him when he's away. I'd love to be able to be with him even when he isn't here.

I also want to know when this product is available. I know many people already that want this also. So please let the world know. This was a fabulous idea.

When it comes out, I'm going to buy it. I don't care how much it costs. Staying so far away from the one I love is quite difficult as it is. Not being able to touch her, hold her or be with her isn't the way things are supposed to be. At least I'll be able to listen to her heart beat when I go to sleep.

One question, which is in two parts. How do these pillows communicate? My first thought would be wifi, assuming that is true, what if my girlfriend goes over seas and doesn't have wifi? also if it is sending a signal then it would probably emit some kind of radiation, if I sleep on this thing every night is it going to give me a brain tumor?

lou February 15, 2014 | 3:09 AM
