Light Wave is a touchless controller which debuted at VanDusen Botanical Gardens for the Festival of Light show in 2015. By waving their hands over the sensors, visitors are able to interact and control lighting; at VanDusen, a grove of maple trees was illuminated.
There are two light-based interactive components to Light Wave. The first is a ring of lights which surround the touchless sensors. When not activated, they pulse and rotate slowly to draw people to the interaction point. When a touchless sensor is activated, the ring lights increase significantly in brightness and activity. This interaction sends a signal to nearly any type of lighting fixture to activate it in a variety of ways. In the case of VanDusen, 28 high powered RGBW lights were controlled. Each of the 14 pairs of lights was pointed at a tree in the maple grove. Waving hands over the sensors caused the trees to light up.
This touchless sensor technology can be applied to many other experiential activations and campaigns. We’re currently busy connecting other technology to this state of the art controller, such as projections, event lighting, and more.
