Relational Pillow: You can Draw on it with Light

The Relational Pillow is sort of like a Lite-Brite of pillows. Designed by MIT’s Ambient Intelligence Group (cool group name guys, unfortunate acronym at this time), the pillow adds an interactive element to something that is normally lifeless. The pillow has light and touch sensors that allow you to draw whatever you desire with the light pixels in the pillow. It’s also WiFi enabled, so that you can transmit images from one Relational Pillow to another, perhaps opening up a line of communication between long-distance couples or a parent on a business trip and a child. Currently it’s conceptual, but I feel it’s an idea worth further exploring.
