“Pillow Talk made me cry as it scores a perfect 10 on the emotional meter. It’s got the stuff that all exceptional things are made of.”
Aim to connect long distance lovers, Pillow Talk an emotionally bond project by Joanna Montgomery, an interaction designer and photographer is a specially design pillow with a wireless chest censor.
The lovers, each have to has a pillow for their bed and a chest sensor which they wear to sleep at night. The chest sensor 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. By placing your head on the pillow, you get to hear the real-time heartbeat of your loved one.
The result, an intimate interaction between two lovers regardless of the distance.

The project is built using a transceiver from a Polar exercise watch, built into a circuit which runs via an Arduino board. The pillows have a flat panel containing the circuit, small speakers and lights, which can slot into any pillow.
