Loop's light pooL

I do like the idea of this light emitting duvet set. One of my background (and therefore hardly started) projects has involved similar ideas - using a simulated dawn to wake you up rather than the sharp shock of an alarm clock.

I've been wondering whether it would waken you up more fully, and whether it would be a more sympathetic method of awakening?

The Light Sleeper is probably more effective than the variable-colour uplighter that I've been designing, given that it's much closer to the sleeper. I do wonder how it's powered though.

Update: Durr. I thought it seemed familiar. Looking at the exhibitions page shows that Light Sleeper was exhibited at the V&A's Brilliant exhibition that I went to back in March...

Pretty cool. Always felt that it'd be a better idea to be woken up by light than by a noisy alarm.

Still not quite as cool as Habitat's Daft Punk designed coffee table though!

The Daft Punk coffee table is pretty cool isn't it - once I'd found it! The Habitat site is a bit style over function... Presumably it suffers from similar power problems though, unless you hide the cable under a rug or something?
