This panel reacts to sunlight. Depending on the outside light situation, the apertures of the double layered textile shift: With direct sunlight they close, with a cloudy sky they open up. Thus it creates a balanced interior light atmosphere. The moving shadows liven the interior. Our prototype was realized with conductive yarn and textiles, photosensors and a servomotor with customized gears. It is programmed with Arduino.
