Quilts are a traditional craft often associated with floral prints, blocks of color and an overall kitschy aesthetic about them -- not so when it comes to the blanket designed by PaleGray Labs. Instead of relying on what can only be described as a quaint, grandmotherly appeal, PaleGray Labs introduces scientific themes into their designs.

Considering that PaleGray Labs was founded by Nina Paley (writer and director of "Sita Sings the Blues") and Pop Sci columnist Theodore Gray, this shouldn't come as a big surprise. Especially when the added detail of a robotic quilting machine is involved. Displaying everything from the periodic table to molecule diagrams of melatonin, THC and Ambien, the designs are humorous, modern and great for those who love such nerdy decor pieces.

PaleGray Labs also employs a Stitch Cam so people can watch the machine at work.
