Motivated by a desire to make building with fabric as easy as playing with Lego blocks, we designed bYOB (Build Your Own Bag), a flexible, computationally-enhanced modular textile system. When modules are snapped together to form an object, they become part of a sensor network and begin to communicate with people, other objects, and their environment.

A bag built out of the system senses if important personal items are missing, illuminates inner contents when it gets dark, and downloads information from the Internet via Bluetooth wireless connectivity. All of this is communicated to the user through light, speech, and lcd actuation.
