Networked Quilt Shares Light Patterns Created by Users in Different Locations

Craft & Design Yarncraft


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.
