Interactive Wall Is A High Tech Playground For Hospitalized Children

I’ve written about several different interactive wall or floor installations lately, and it seems people are coming up with more and more creative ways to use this type of technology to enhance our world. In this particular example, you’ll see a gigantic television game (which is the size of a whole room) in the form of an interactive wall that the children at Royal London Children’s Hospital can use as a sort of high tech playground. Your heart will melt when you see the pictures below.

This is a permanent installation in the hospital, and it’s purpose is to encourage the children to play, interact, create, have fun and smile – all of which will help them heal. The television game is called Woodland Wiggle and it allows these children to digitally enter the game in front of them to paint, play music, dance and just have fun. They can even trigger weather effects like rainbows, rain and sun. I wish I could play with this interactive wall myself, which is strange since it’s in a hospital. It just goes to show how much a dose of creativity can do to bring cheer to the most seemingly gloomy places.

The gigantic furniture you see in the room was all added to give it an Alice In Wonderland feel. The kids in that one picture below almost look like action figures compared to the furniture, but those are actual children playing with the interactive wall. I think it is wonderful that this hospital recognizes the correlation between happiness and health. I’m sure these children will heal faster and have better memories of their time at this hospital because of this technology. You can read more about it here on the creator’s website at Chris O’Shea.
