The folks over at mybeatingheart.com have created a heart-shaped pillow that, when squeezed, emits a soothing heartbeat that you can actually feel. That means that your loved one can feel as if you are near, even when you aren’t.

A squeeze of the heart-shaped image on the woven label at the bottom of the heart is all it takes to turn it on. What really makes it unique is the fact that the heartbeat changes each time it is activated. And ,the tiny computer inside the pillow uses an algorithm to create a heartbeat that replicates that of a human in a meditative state.

Each handmade pillow comes in several styles and colors to choose from as well as materials. They are battery operated and also very easy to clean.
