Pillow Talk – Design For Long Distance Lovers

10 Apr

These days I did some research about some similar products and projects so I can get more inspiration and information which can contribute to my project. I want to make something that allow you to send your feeling to your friends and families or anyone you want in the distance. Similar but different from mine, a lovely product called “pillow talk” is designed especially for long distance lovers.

Each person has a pillow for their bed and a sensor fitted into a wearable chest strap, 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. Placing your head on the pillow allows you to hear the real-time heartbeat of your loved one.

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

The information is from fashioningtech.com
