'Pillow Talk' is a high-tech device that helps long-distance couples stay connected. Anyone who is in a long-distance relationship knows how difficult it can be to replicate the feeling of physical closeness. This device uses each partner's heartbeat in order to help couples shrink the distance between them.

Pillow Talk is a set of wearable wristbands and accompanying speakers that help to transmit the sound of each user's heartbeat. The wristband is equipped with heart sensors that will pick up the sound of each wearer's heartbeat. In turn, each individual puts the speaker underneath their pillow in order to hear the sound of their partner's heartbeat. The system allows each user to hear and feel their partner's heart beating in a way that is designed to foster closeness.

Although the device is ideal for long-distance couples, Pillow Talk can also be used by mothers who may want to monitor their baby from another room.
