When a child is afraid at night, sometimes a combination of light and companionship will help ease their troubles away -- that is where the LeeLuu collection comes into play. LeeLuu are part night lights, but cuddle-ready toys that a child may never want to part ways with. What makes it even better is the fact that the designs are controlled by touch, making the interaction very practical.
Originally conceived by in an interactive prototyping class at Aalto University, LeeLuu was taken to the next level by Lisa Gerkens, Hanna Markgren, Emmi Pouta and Heini Salovuori as well as women from Germany, Sweden and Finland. Gerkens says, "I believe that the core of what's under the hood is our expertise with textile sensors and how to work with users."
