Boston Children's Hospital Interactive Wall

Empowering children is the focus of the Boston Children’s Hospital Interactive Media wall. This two-story tall LED screen invites and intrigues children and their families as they enter the hospital with characters and shapes playfully mirroring their movements.

Nine unique scenes and environments rotate throughout the day to ensure fresh impressions and new experiences. Utilizing thirteen Microsoft Kinect sensors, seven optical sensors, and sixteen computers, all tied together with custom code, the system observes and adapts to the positions and gestures of guests as they move throughout the atrium space to create a memorable experience.
