Runway in the bedroom

Light-house, headed by three engineers (above), is developing a safety lighting system. It uses a pressure mat, sensors and LEDs to illuminate bedroom floors like a runway at night. The test phase idea grew from a course group project focused on OAPs. "We found elderly people were having a lot of dangerous falls in the dark and really hurting themselves," says Paul Mahony. "It could work well in nursing homes or for Alzheimers patients who get confused."
