Ripple Carpet / Textile Floor

Ripple Carpet

‘Ripple Carpet’ is a smart product, which enables its users to experience nature indoors. Users can enjoy the feeling of soaking their feet in a shallow stream by stepping on this ‘Ripple Carpet’. The ripple-patterned carpet is made of silicone rubber. It is very soft when it is stepped on. In the middle part of the carpet, three special sensors are inserted: pressure sensor, LED light and sound speaker. So, it generates the splashing sound and gradually lights on when the users standing on it.
