"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can not be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."

Mark Twain

Let it be known that I'm not such a cold hearted cynical sort.... Joanna Montgomery's latest design piece brought a flutter to my little piece of chest flint. Montgomery, who is a interactive designer and photographer, invented Pillow Talk in a bid to bond long distance lovers. It's a very simple idea but something that i think has the potential to sell like hot cakes.

"Each person has a pillow for their bed and a chest sensor 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 result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them."

It definitely beats holding an overheated mobile phone to a reddening ear! The video below gives a brief demo of Pillow Talk in action. Due to numerous enquires regarding where to purchase a set, she is currently seeking investments in order to turn the project into a product.

Alas it was not just gallivanting to gigs and galleries that has kept me away from the site for the past few weeks but rather an extremely painful encounter with tendonitis. Who would have thought that the simple act of typing could make your wrist feel like it was sledgehammered?! Whilst I'm waiting for the damn thing to heal, feel free to have a wander through some of the links on the right to keep yourselves amused.
