The exhibit’s full-body interactive displays will invite visitors to immerse themselves in the technology and wonders of light.
Picture walking through a tunnel, illuminated by 20,000 individual LED lights. Now imagine being able to manipulate those lights to follow your every movement! Keiki and ʻohana will also be able to see their shadows come to life with computer vision technology; explore a walk-in kaleidoscope; and be challenged to dodge lasers as they try to get to their next destination. The exhibit will emphasize the importance of play as a means to learning.
