The wristband picks up your realtime heartbeat and transmits it via smartphone app to the other person’s pillow
Each person has a wristband they wear to bed at night and a small speaker which you place inside your pillow case. The wristband picks up your realtime heartbeat and transmits it via smartphone app to the other person’s pillow. Placing your head on your own pillow enables you to hear the realtime heartbeat of your loved one. The result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them.
Pillow Talk is the product that led to the formation of Little Riot. It began life in a slightly different form as a university product of founder Joanna Montgomery in 2010. After being featured on Gizmodo, the project went viral and has since received 1.3m+ views on Youtube and worldwide attention.
Over the last two years we have worked flat out to raise funding and develop Pillow Talk into a commercial product. It has been an incredibly long, difficult and expensive journey but we are almost there! We know you guys have been really patient and we are so grateful for that.
We are really excited that Kickstarter are now accepting projects from the UK. Pillow Talk has been submitted and approved but we have to meet certain criteria before we can launch our campaign. We are in the final phases of product development but should be ready to kick things off soon. Kickstarter will enable us to fund our manufacture and one of the pledges on will be a full pre-order.
When the Kickstarter campaign has ended, you will be able to purchase directly from our online store; this will be in place and ready to go by then.
You can follow the development of Pillow Talk by ‘liking’ our page on Facebook. We’re really keen to hear your thoughts and input – we are, after all, designing this for you – so please get involved and help shape Pillow Talk into a product you will really love.
