Innovative Blanket Could Monitor Your Health — Or Just Keep You Toasty

from The Toronto Star

Your childhood blanky might have been able to hold off the bogeyman, but was it smart enough to help detect a sleeping disorder? IM Blanky, a high-tech blanket developed by a team of University of Toronto architects, could. A network of tilt sensors in the shape of flowers and stems is embroidered into green taffeta fabric, allowing the blanket to wirelessly create a 3D model of itself on a computer in real time. Lift a corner of the blanket, and the corner of the computer model lifts, too. Place it over someone sleeping, and the model would change when the person moves. more
