Hear Your Sweetheart's Heartbeat

Postby Yogi » 09 Nov 2014, 07:48

If your loved one is far away, and you want to create some intimacy with them, how about a little Pillow Talk?
Each person has a wristband they wear to bed at night and a small speaker which you place inside your pillow case. The wristband picks up your realtime heartbeat and transmits it via smartphone app to the other person's pillow. Placing your head on your own pillow enables you to hear the realtime heartbeat of your loved one. The result is an intimate interaction between two lovers, regardless of the distance between them.

Little Riot, a British company, is hoping to be selling these devices in the near future. The question is, do you think this idea is so good that you would help fund the operation via Kickstarter?

Maybe TOO close. The snoring alone drives me potty! It might only be occasionally, but I prefer to drop to sleep in silence - or try to! :grin:

The device is designed to bring some intimacy into long distance relationships. Hard as it is to believe, that kind of thing happens a lot on the Internet.

But is it something you would want to waste money on?

Is it feasible to have your Schmartz-Fone on all night, and under your pillow getting hotter by the minute, rather than in the charger?
Plus you have to pay for TWO Data Plans to use it, and the devices.

It costs plenty already to have a long-distance relationship. I know, I met Debi on-line and drove the 1060 mile round trip every other weekend for a dinner date. I put over 35,000 miles on my car while dating. Not to mention the oil changes, tires, maintenance, and GAS.

Well I'm sure that long-distance relationships thrive OK by using phones, skype etc. I wouldn't fancy something under my pillow, gently beating away all night.

I mean, however much you care for someone, if you've been in contact for much of the evening, I'd have thought that just thinking about that person as you drifted off to sleep'd suffice.

It'll probably catch on with some folk though, but when you have situations like this, the best thing's to try and see the object of your desire in the flesh as often as possible. This happened when my brother was at university. He was stuck at one end of the country, while his fiancé was at the other. They phoned 3-4 times a week, and travelled in turns to be with each other when they had a free weekend. They even married while they were still studying, so it can be done, and this went on until they got their PhDs.

and what happens when there is a break in service? will it just go _____________________ or will there be an announcement saying "we are experiencing some technical difficulties and will commence service as soon as possible..." followed by some elevator music.

just thinking of skype's endless dropped calls, distortions etc

:shock: :shock: :shock:

LOL - you beat me to it Gary! : )

Suppose in reality, there'd have to be something that let you know if your partner's device'd been switched off, otherwise it could be very worrying!

We have a company down the street from us 'Spy Tech Supply.'
You would not believe the number of things they sell.
We also have 'Watchdog Surveillance and Spy Gear' in another part of town.
Although the smaller a device gets, the higher the price climbs.
They even have a camera built into a normal looking power cable jack, like is on most of your wall warts to charge things from, and audio pick-ups even smaller yet.
A ball point pen with camera and audio.
Plus USB port devices that monitor all kinds of things. Some even look like a USB port cover they are so small.
Neat stuff for someone who needs it.

LOL - well I'm not just thinking of general security here, but listening-in devices being in operation and all sorts. How can anyone live happily in such a bugged-up place?

my g/f moved back home with ma and pa... only to discover that her parents had the house wired for sound!

her sister is autistic, a high functioning adult, but needed supervision, yet the parents were no longer well enough to keep an eye on her 24/7.

friend moved out PDQ! :lol:

To place sound/movement monitors in certain rooms, such as with baby listening devices - fair enough. I can also understand having alarm systems in place in case someone breaks in, but I found a small gadget attached to the underside of this friend's dining table. I had no idea what it was until I asked. It was so that he could hear conversations when he left the room. I know he has other things in place as well, like cameras which're concealed or disguised. There're no young children in the house, so I really find it a bit off-putting, and wonder what he's so scared of?? : (
