Smart Blanket / Smart Blanket

Smart Blanket
Smart Blanket

Have you ever been woken by uncomfortable temperature? No matter too hot or too cold, the temperature will break your sleep, or even cause healthy problem, such as catching cold.
We observe one situation that people will react to the temperature by pulling or kicking their blanket. And furthermore, these behaviors are mostly unconscious. If we can easily adjust our fan with our reaction on the blanket, we won’t be bothered during our sleep. And that’s what we aim to do, a smart blanket. We put the sensor on the blanket and pillow, and the fan will turn on or off automatically when the area between each sensor is larger than setting. So user won't be awaken by change of temperature.
