An illuminating bed pillow.
This project was developed in junior product design studio at Appalachian State University. The objective was to create a new type of night light to ease a common anxiety shared by children – fear of the dark. I accomplished this by playing off of childrens connection with plush animals as imaginary friends to evoke comfort through companionship. The lighting technology is intertwined with the personality of the stuffed animal in a fun biology lesson on the existence of bio-luminescent squids.
