With the help of a sophisticated micro-computer, this innovative pillow creates a unique heartbeat every time you turn it on. Using the latest technology and computer science, coupled with the practice of meditation and yoga, this calming pillow's heartbeat is based on the heart when it's in its most peaceful and meditative state. Sure to help you relax, make you more aware of your surroundings and more in tune with your own beating heart. Designed by Yury Gitman. Made in China.
