Cyborg Sleepers

"What if we design a new generation mattress that builds artificial sensory ties between people?"

KNYTAS is a responsive resting furniture, allows people to relate and interact with each other with the help of technology. A Kinect and other sensors record the motion, body temperature, sound and smell of the user and the system sends this data to the other person simultaneously. Beyond visual and auditory communication: KNYTAS creates bi-directional sensory interactions between people especially for couples who are in a long-distance relationship.
