So, I promised you'd get carpets under my reign here at Gizmodo. Here's a nifty one designed by a young UK designer.

Sajjadah 1426 (Sajjadah means "prayer rug" in persian/turkish and 1426 stands for 2005 in Islamic calendar) is a high tech carpet for Muslims who have to turn to the Mecca and pray five times a day.

The rug indicates the right direction via the data coming from a compass module embedded inside the prayer mat. The closer to the direction of the Mecca the rug is turned, the brighter the Electro Luminescent panel. -RD
