Bookmark Switch

This was a project that was part of MIT workshop in collaboration with Royal College of Art using the Reality Editor.
My approach was to use the Reality Editor for automation and aligning products and actions that made sense. The idea is centred around when you go to bed, you turn off the main light and you open your book and your bedside light goes on. It is a bookmark that is touch sensitive to when the book is open or closed. Most of the time when we fall asleep, we either leave the light on or fumble around to turn the light off, using this idea the bedside light turns off when you need it to and turns on when you need it to. It could be taken a step further and connected to the mainlight too so that turns off and the bedside light turns on. It is a very simple project but can be quite effective. Bookmarks could be customised and made to order.
