Cayton Children's Museum
The Cayton Children's Museum is an indoor, interactive play space in the Santa Monica region of Los Angeles. Float4 developed, designed, programmed, and integrated three interactive installations for the space.
The Sand Table is an interactive projection on a real sand table. The topography of the terrain evolves depending on the depth of the sand mounds that are created by the children. The content projected onto the table passes through spring, autumn, summer, and winter. Each season offers its own buildings, animals and color palette.
Float4 also designed and programmed two interactive content capsules for the Floor Projection installation: a Garden and a Zen Forest. Different content elements grow, light up, or flutter, depending on the proximity of the children to these specific elements.
The Art Wall is a digital wall made of 10 LCD displays. Float4 designed three different generative and interactive capsules for this third installation. Children can manipulate content through movement-based interaction, captured by a Microsoft Kinect Azure, or by touch-based interaction via a Hokuyo Laser. A slideshow capsule allows staff to add their own media to the Art Wall through a stream-deck device.
