That's the premise behind Pillow Talk, an interactive product aimed at bringing long distance lovers together. Each person has a special pillow on their bed and goes to sleep wearing a wireless ring sensor. When one half of the couple goes to bed, the pillow on the other's bed begins to glow softly. Placing their head on the glowing pillow, one can instantly hear the real-time heartbeat of their lover and feel closely connected, regardless of distance.

Pillow Talk was a thesis project developed by Joanna Montgomery in 2010. It has won several awards for innovation, and due to the popularity of the concept, has recently secured the funding needed to begin prototyping for production. Those interested in Pillow Talk can follow its development on the Facebook page of Joanna's newly formed company, Little Riot.
