Sajjadah 1426

Sajjadah 1426 by Soner Ozenc is a prayer rug woven with electroluminescent wire that increases its brightness as it’s pointed more toward Mecca. A compass module built into the rug senses the orientation and changes the brightness of the EL wires. Seems like a good companion to the Ikone i800 mobile phone. I like the idea behind the phone, but at its core, it’s still software on a generic phone. What’s interesting about the rug is that it’s digital hardware for a specific audience. This one’s got a pretty large potential audience
