Business Description


Little Riot is a new interaction design company aiming to connect people with technology through design. The business is currently developing Pillow Talk, a product that aims to enable couples separated by distance to network. By using technology to suggest ‘presence’, Pillow Talk provides an intimate and engaging interaction that is entirely physical as opposed to being screen-based. The concept of ‘digital intimacy’ is going to be huge – people are starting to expect more from technology and Pillow Talk provides that. The concept is hugely scalable and can be applied to other relationships, such as that between mothers and babies.
 
The business aims to take Pillow Talk to market and establish Little Riot as the leader in the field for digital intimacy products in the hope that the company will become a recognised platform from which to develop and launch further products and concepts. The company is sustainable because it will continue to push boundaries, designing and developing exciting and innovative ways for people to communicate and connect.
