1/7 Philips recently partnered with Desso, a high-quality carpeting producer, to create a new type of light transmissive carpet embedded with LEDs that can be programmed to display important messages, directions, or other information.
2/7 When it's not displaying a message, the light transmissive carpet could also glow softly to give the room a distinctive tone or ambiance .
3/7 Philips and Desso have only mentioned that it will involve a layer of LEDs beneath a special light transmissive carpet, giving it the appearance of an ordinary carpet until it's lit.
4/7 The two companies have already presented a few examples of specific places where their idea could be implemented, such as replacing the 'Do Not Disturb' signs.
6/7 Once it launches, the carpet will be available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes to suit almost any space.
7/7 Probably the most useful potential application is to have the carpet display guide lights in an emergency.
