Networked Quilt Shares Light Patterns Created by Users in Different Locations


Syuzi of Fashioning Technology points us to this amazing quilt developed by Alberto Elizondo, Roberto Picerno, Francesca Pizzutilo.

Lullaby is an illuminated quilt that bridges the distance between a parent and a child geographically apart through interactive play. Touching a quadrant on one quilt, simultaneously illuminates the same pattern on a second quilt.
The interaction is quite simple: each quilt is assigned a specific LED color and touching a section of a quilt causes the quilt to illuminate. The quilts are networked so a pattern created by one person is shared with the other.
