Philips unveils interactive light wall for waiting rooms
Royal Philips Electronics has unveiled its Imagination Light Canvas, at the new Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, Ark., which will open on March 16.

The canvas, displayed in the Women’s and Children’s waiting area, is an interactive light wall, 14-feet long and 6-feet high, that uses touch screen and Philips technologies to animate 1,420 LED lights, the company said.

By using their hands to draw on the wall, visitors can paint with light, using a spectrum of colors and shapes, and the images will remain visible for a few minutes and then disappear.

The Imagination Light Canvas can accommodate up to six people drawing at the same time. The canvas is intended for the patients and staff of the new hospital.
