This project is a follow-up project on the "Sqeeze Light" project “ in which I developed a reactive, luminous textile. This textile has the characteristics of any other textile, like softness and flexibility, but it can light up by the integrated LED’s. By applying pressure to the textile, internal sensors can measure the pressure and give a reaction like in this case a change of color. This makes the fabric a combination of a textile sensor and actuator at the same place. Read Less

Sqeeze Light 2.0 - Manufactured
Interactive Luminous Textile

This project is a follow-up project on the "Sqeeze Light" project “ in which I developed a reactive, luminous textile. This textile has the characteristics of any other textile, like softness and flexibility, but it can light up by the integrated LED’s. By applying pressure to the textile, internal sensors can measure the pressure and give a reaction like in this case a change of color. This makes the fabric a combination of a textile sensor and actuator at the same place.

Project was part of an internship at EE Labels, Heeze (The Netherlands)
The lamp is designed to affect the atmosphere of your living room. It adapts itself to changes in light intensity as well as to pressure changes in the textile. It reacts by changing its appearance, in this case by changing between red and green light.
