The Wishing Wall fabric senses proximity and touch, empowering personal reflections, dreams, and wishes to be transformed into light and sound experiences.
Each touch zone is made of conductive silver fabric and as the human body approaches, measures changes in electrical capacitance in the environment. This information is mapped and converted into changes in light intensity, color, sound, and even touch, and haptic feedback. The light glows through the fabric and the sounds themselves come from the surface of the wall, vibrating onto the hand when touched. Many combinations of touch and proximity are possible to create endless experiences that embody the spirit of introspection, reflection, and connected, empathetic engagement with others. Surprise effects are created with specific gestural patterns and hidden touch zones.
For the Wishing Wall and Glowing Together exhibits, Heath Interactive experiential design studio developed new software and hardware strategies as a platform for a multitude of possible interactions and discoveries; including custom sound and lighting design and music and haptic mappings.
