Stitch: Whispering Pillow / interactive pillow

Stitch: Whispering Pillow
Stitch: Whispering Pillow

Stitch is an interactive pillow which makes the experience of waking up more pleasant. It is inspired from our childhood memory of a parent telling us events we look forward to, to wake us up in the morning. Stitch helps you get off to a happier start to your day, breaking away from the frustration of conventional alarms. It retrieves data about your upcoming activities, weather updates and exciting news. Using this data it talks to you about the day and wakes you up to a positive and enthusiastic start. It integrates technologies like ‘Smart Textiles’ and Internet of Things into the mundane pillow for a new generation domestic landscape.
