Glass with tilt switch

tilt_switch_glass

This is a bedside water glass with a tilt switch. It stands upside down on the table to prevent dust to go inside. When user wakes up at night to drink water, he turns down glass and tilt switch gets activated to lighten the LEDs which are embedded bottom of glass. So glass turns into a lighting unit which eases pouring water from carafe at dark. After drinking water user turns upside down glass again to switch off light and keep glass clean.

Adem’s plush light ideas

I have always loved the mashrabiya windows of arabic culture. They always look so magical and mysterious. Here are some examples of mashrabiya;

So I wanted to use a similar lighting illusion and beauty. The first idea was a backpack which has a mashrabiya ligting at back side. And the second one was an insulating case with mashrabiya effect for water bottle. That means the water bottle can also work as a mashrabiya lantern! Different colored LEDs can be implemented.

The second idea is a plush turkish flag light! It can be hanged over window at night.

The last one is a plush watch. There is no need to take it off while sleeping since its comfortable and warm. When pushed on top of the watch, the fabric touches to digital screen and the time appears. The whole watch lights with diffferent colors and makes sound if the alarm is set.
