Interactive pillow smiles at you!

“Researchers at MIT’s Ambient Media have created what they call the Relational Pillow. The device is an interactive pillow concept that understands touch instructions and helps as a communication aid between different people. The pillow uses Wi-Fi technology to allow the users connect and communicate with other Relational Pillow users far away.

This would be of great help to separated lovers who long for each other’s company while in bed. They would no more feel lonely and secluded, as the Relational Pillow would help the lovers to stay in touch while both of them are not physically near each other. This could also suggest that the Relational Pillow is the first gadget or device to enhance and support long distance relationships.”
