Little Riot’s Pillow Talk – Being away from a loved-one occasionally due to travel or work is tough, and long-distance relationships are even tougher. Little Riot’s Pillow Talk lets you hear the heartbeat of a loved-one in real time. How? Each person has a wristband they wear to bed and a small speaker that can be placed under the pillow. The wristband picks up the person’s heartbeat in real time and sends it to the other person’s pillow. This allows each person to hear the heartbeat of a loved one, wherever they are in the world. Pillow Talk is part of the product offering of a Little Riot, a team of engineers and designers based in London. Released in December 2017, Pillow Talk was born out of a university project by one of Little Riot’s founders Joanna Montgomery, that went viral. Pillow Talk has also started a trial in hospitals as a means of connecting children who are too sick to be taken out of bed, with their parents.
