“We wouldn’t be here without assistance from Aalto University. It all started with a 12 week course with interactive objects. We got such good feedback that we decided to participate in the Summer of Startups here in Otaniemi and, later, in the Startup Sauna. Now, after a lot of hard work and interactive prototyping and designing, we have managed to make a touch-sensitive nightlight for kids that many have described as truly magical. With the help of these nightlights kids can feel safe in their own room during the night. And, like all parents with small kids know, this also ensures better sleep for the entire family.”
