Three Brainstorm sketches
Anglerfish. This concept was meant for kids that were interested in aquatic animals.
VW plush toy. This concept was for car passengers. Like an air freshener it would hang from the car mirror. It would act as a soft light when you don’t want to distract the driver when they are driving in the dark.
Chosen idea: Night vision eyeglasses.
This night light eyeglasses are meant for people that have difficulty finding their way around when they wake up at night. It can help you get around without disturbing your sleeping partner. The intent is for people to keep this soft toy in bed with them. When they wake up they can switch on the eyeglasses and find their way to wherever they need to go. It can be especially helpful when you can’t find your real eyeglasses in the dark.
The two lens on the plush toy will glow and the arms of the eyeglasses will have flexible wire that make it bendable and foldable. During the day the arms of the toy can be unfolded and sat on a surface. At night the arms can be folded up for cuddling.
For this toy, there will need to be two fabric cutouts of the font/back of the glasses. The arms of the glasses will be cut out 4 times. The eyeglass frame will be cut out twice.
soft Pink fabric for body eyeglasses
Sheer white fabric for lens (nylon or another fabric)
8 5mm blue LED lights
Wire – meant to make the arms of the eyeglasses bendable
foam board -may be used as an insert to keep the LEDs in place/for diffusion
Poly fil – toy stuffing
Battery case /batteries
My unstuffed prototype helped me realize I need to make the edge of the frame wider so it’s not as difficult to sew. I will probably also add fabric to the back to give it more room for stuffing and the batteries and LEDs.
