The world is full of lonely people looking for sex, love and companionship. If you are craving human company, I am not sure technology is the answer but that hasn’t stopped the geeks from trying. Pillow Talk is a pillow (surprise, surprise!) that mimics a heartbeat to recreate the feeling of lying in bed next to another person. I can imagine that this may be comforting to the recently bereaved but I can’t think who would really get any joy from the app FakeGirlfriend. FakeGirlfriend allows men to create their own virtual girlfriend and receive computer generated text messages from her. I guess if you really need to fool someone into thinking you are all loved-up, it might be useful, but if you are lonely, I can’t imagine how fake messages would do anything but remind you of the fact.
