A comfort blanket or night-light is often used to smooth the path towards sleep for children. The blanket responds to movements under it, which trigger different colour pattern sequences, depending on how it is moved. It allows the child to interact and have more control of the light source.

There are 4 circuits of 10 lights, each with a different colour, pulse rate and illumination period. Technical Information: A single microprocessor controls all 4 circuits and is linked via 4 movement sensors encapsulated into the material.

Materials: fleece, thread and electronic components.
