co-Carpet / interactive carpet

co-Carpet

We designed a programmable modular interactive carpet. When baby climb, lay, walk or have other movements on co-Carpet, some modules of it would generate feedback such as light, sound and raise, according to the program coded in a companion APP. Co-Carpet connects the interaction and cultivates affection between the newborn and its elder siblings, greatly reducing the burden of parents. Older children can learn to program and take care of the newborn sibling, while baby would play in various patterns and be encouraged to observe and react, promoting limbs movement and sensory development.
