It's Electric! Kids Draw on Hospital Wall with their Fingers

E-mail Print PDF
A trip to the hospital can be frightening for anyone, especially for children. But now a leading health and technology company is brightening up trips to the doctor, literally!

The Philips Imagination Light Canvas is a 14 feet long, six feet high light wall that uses touch screens to animate more than 14 hundred LED lights in different colors. The lights can also be programmed to show different patterns and designs. Kids use their hands to activate the lights and paint on the canvas. Up to six people can draw on it at the same time, and despite all of the colorful and bright lights, it only consumes the daily energy equivalent of a toaster.

The new technology helps children and their families relieve some of the stress and anxiety of their visit. The prototype resides at the women's and children's waiting area of the new Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, Arkansas.

Produced for Philips
