pillow talkLong distance relationships are difficult. So I hear. I've listened to a friend a time or two lament about them. Actually, ha. I forgot I was in one in college. Whoops! Anyway, there's nothing easy about being separated from the one you love. But there's a new product in beta testing that might help alleviate some of that pain. It's called Pillow Talk and it's a pillow that does way more than just support your heavy head. It supports your heavy heart. Aww.

It's kind of hard to explain -- it's like E.T. phone-home in pillow form, whatever that means -- but it's worth a look-see. Lucky for us, there's a video that explains everything. Bonus: The video, I believe, uses an Explosions in the Sky song, which as you know, is the band famous for their Friday Night Lights soundtrack, which as you also know, is amazing. K. On to the pillows.

So there's this ring that you put on your finger that communicates wirelessly with the inside panel of your partner's pillow and he can hear your heart beat through it. Even though you're in two different cities, it feels like you're laying on his chest, and vice versa. And his lights up when you put your head on yours ... see? Told you it was hard to describe.

I can't wait til this pillow is on the market; I think it's terrific. I can really see how useful it would be to feeling and staying connected with your significant other who's out of town temporarily, or indefinitely.
