Whether it be the fiber optic heart pillows or the REi Huggable Pillow, pillows and geeks go hand-in-hand, and this one is no exception. The Interactive Pillows from Design Goteborg are actually wired with electroluminescent wire that enables the pillows to connect to a communication service (wirelessly) and interact with other wired pillows. When a pillow is touched, hugged or leaned against, it will activate the pattern on the other pillow to glow and will change with various movements. Definitely an interesting way to "keep in touch" with a loved one. In the meantime, I'll stick with my trusty cell phone.
