Sleeping all alone is one of the hardest things in a long distance relationship. The “Pillow talk” was created by a Scottish designer named Joanna Montgomery in order to make things less hard. So how does it work? Each member of a couple wears a special ring sensor at night, and places a fabric panel inside his or her pillowcase. When one person goes to bed, the ring wirelessly communicates with his lover’s pillow and causes it to gently glow. When he puts his head on the pillow, he can hear the real-time heartbeat of his partner, no matter how far away. Such a romantic gadget!

The Taion heart is a white plastic heart which fits to your palm, and when you squeeze it, it senses your pulse and temperature. That information is “sent” through a wireless Bluetooth connection to your mobile phone and is passed onto your partner’s phone, which in turn beams the information to their Taion Heart. This is very cool cause you can actually know when your partner is thinking of you, and even feel his warmth.
