Amazing interactive world created for kids hospital

Nexus and Chris O’Shea transport children to an interactive woodland world with their new activity space at the Royal London hospital. Chris O’Shea, the artist and interaction designer, has collaborated with digital production company, Nexus Interactive Arts, to create ‘Woodland Wiggle’, an innovative interactive installation at Europe’s newest hospital, The Royal London, which helps children benefit from the healing powers of art and play.

‘Woodland Wiggle’ is a pioneering interactive game displayed on a television the size of a room. It allows children to enter a storybook illustrated world enabling them to paint; play music; and trigger sun, rain, snow and rainbows with animated animal characters across diifferent scenes.O’Shea used the latest creative technologies, including custom software written in C++ using open Frameworks and an Xbox Kinect camera, to bring the unimaginable to life by reflecting the children’s video image within the scene in real-time, allowing them escape the reality of their daily treatment and interact with the exciting environment.
