Percy is an electronic instrument that taps on the intuitiveness of percussion playing to encourage physical activity in elderly with dementia. Body movements are tracked by a motion sensor and a range of percussion sounds is produced in response, gently nudging such elderly to be more active.
Shadow Play! is an interactive display inspired by children’s imaginative play of shadow casting. The play experience is amplified and enhanced through digital means, as children can use their body movements to move their shadow animals and trigger sounds. At the end, the animal can be customised according to the child’s liking and released into a virtual environment to roam.
