A Japanese mobile service provider has created a device, known as 'Taion Heart', that can transmit your partner's pulse through a phone app so that you can physically feel their heartbeat.
No matter how far away you are from your loved one, you can always feel close.
While the potential negative consequences of the device haven't been fully explored, for the romantic tech-lovers the Taion Heart is designed to replicate the experience of holding hands.
The device takes pulse and pressure readings when held in the palm of your hand. It transmits them via Bluetooth to a mobile phone running the application, reports News.com.au.
The app sends the data to your partner's phone, which in turn transmits the information to their Taion Heart that vibrates, warms up and illuminates in different colours depending on the readings.
NTT DoCoMo Inc., the company that made the device, said that couples can hold the heart in bed as they sleep to feel close to their absent partner.
They don't have any immediate plans to release the Taion Heart commercially.
