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.
And by adding sensors for temperature, pressure, humidity and heart rate, it could become the ultimate comforter.
Too warm? The blanket monitoring your body temperature would command the thermostat to turn down, without you even noticing.
