Wonga Future 50: Little Riot

Pillow Talk is a product that connects long-distance lovers. In a world of international travel and hotel lifestyles, each person has a panel that slots into their pillowcase and a ring sensor that they wear to sleep at night. The ring 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 result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them.

The founder,?Joanna Montgomery, says: ?Pillow Talk is a digital solution that creates the illusion and feeling of presence, allowing lovers to co-exist and to interact with each other in a fluid, non-invasive way. This phenomenon has not been explored before on the commercial market and will have a huge impact on how people communicate using technology.

Connecting people physically via a virtual technology is going to the way the future works. Little Riot’s Pillow Talk is just the thin end of a very, very large wedge.
