Project Vika

About

The Princess Maxima Foundation is committed to the pediatric oncology departments within hospitals. This year, an assignment was submitted through this foundation to minor students at TU Delft to give these affected children the feeling that they have everything under control. This is how Project Vika came into existence. When the plans were on the table, Luxigo was approached to participate in this project and so we eventually became the main sponsor.

This interactive wall consists of more than 200 laser-cut parts that form the frame. All laser-cut panels have their own electric motors and can be controlled separately. The control is done with 3 centrally located Kinect modules, which use arm gestures as input. Smart programming allows children to move the entire interactive wall, while “big” people can only turn the bottom row. This gives these sick children a feeling of power and control, in times when this is definitely needed.
