Not only does this high-tech prayer rug look super funky with its glowing design, but its LED lights actually offer functional properties.

Embedded inside the Turkish tapestry is a compass that enables the rug to detect when it is being pointed toward Mecca. The closer it is to facing the sacred site and holy city in Saudi Arabia, the brighter the lights glow.

The Illuminated Prayer Rug which uses electroluminescent phosphor printing is the brain child of Turkish designer Soner Özenç who has named his creation the Sajjdah 1426.
