technical & practice

In a recent Royal College of Art project, sponsored by Orange, students from the textiles, design products and computer related design departments developed technology-based prototype ideas to enhance people's lives.

The work includes interactive technology and features a home floor tile (below)which lights up as you walk over it, designed by Natalie Woolf, who is researching a PHD in reactive surfaces; and a pillow that gently glows to wake you up, created by Rachel Wingfield (above) from North Yorkshire.

She wanted to pursue the reduction of noise through light alternatives.
