Recent college graduate Joanna Montgomery developed this wonderful project that physically connects long-distance love birds. Each person has a pillow for their bed and wears a sensory ring. At night, when one person goes to bed, the other's pillow gives off a soft, assuring glow to indicate their presence. You can then place your head on your pillow to hear the actual heartbeat of your sweetheart.
How brilliant is that?? It's such a sweet idea for new mothers, too.
