Light-Up Pillow for Night Readers #WearableWednesday

A video posted by Alexa Forney (@oloxo) on

One of my students at SVA’s Products of Design grad program, Alexa Forney, writes:

The old joke is that readers never sleep alone–they always have a book in the bed. Now, night readers of the world have two companions. A book, and a handy light!

Avoid getting out of bed with a lamp that stays under your head while you sleep. This pillow folds in half, neatly activating a reading light as you adjust it under your back.

She used conductive fabric to make a switch that activates the warm DotStar LED strip when the pillow is folded in half.
