When I first saw this I immediately thought: genius. Not only does this invention skip over oceans and continents but it creates an instant bond for two people despite the distance between them. Read below for Kate Gibson’s article on The Long Distance Pillow.

The minds at UK-based design shop Little Riot has created a pillow that helps with long distance relationships. The distance can be too much a times, especially at night. This is where the Pillow Talk comes in.
Pillow Talk is an Internet-enabled pair of pillows that talk to each other anywhere in the world. When your significant other is sleeping, your pillow glows in response. When you put your head down on yours, it sends a signal over the Internet to light up the other as well.
Each person also has a ring sensor they wear to bed. The ring wirelessly communicates with the other person’s pillow. 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.
There is no pricing, yet. Kickstarter has just approved the project but the company has said that they have to meet certain criteria before they can launch a campaign. Keep your eyes open for this next big thing!
