New technology aimed at helping couples to sleep better in their white beds has won £50,000 funding and is already receiving a huge online following, according to reports. The aptly-named invention, Pillow Talk, was designed by Dundee University student Joanna Montgomery and is targeted at long-distance couples who want to have a part of their special someone in bed with them as they rest their heads, the Daily Record has revealed (December 19th). Similar to the act of matrimony, the pair must each wear a ring that detects their unique heartbeat. Both users must also put a flat panel inside their pillow to benefit from this clever invention. Through a mobile phone app, one lover's heartbeat is transferred to the other, and vice-versa. The 24-year-old seemed surprised at the exposure her invention has enjoyed, and told the source: "I thought there must be better ways for us to interact with technology and each other." She added: "I narrowed it down to people wanting to hear their partner or their kids."
