Medical melodies

Montreal-based interactive media specialists Moment Factory have developed an interactive musical wall that helps patients and visitors to pass the time in hospital waiting rooms.

The musical wall designed has been designed to stimulate children’s imaginations as they wait for their hospital appointment. The experience, which is located at the CHU Ste-Justine Hospital, is comprised of a projector and motion sensors.

The experience begins when hospital visitors touch the wall. By moving their hands and fingers around, they create vibrant lines and shapes that trace their movement and produce musical notes.
