• Interactive sculpture at UK hospital measures user’s heart rate!


  • Interactive sculptures have always fascinated us, and this new piece of art and technology combined set up at the Royal Manchester Children’s’ Hospital in the United Kingdom has left us awestruck. Designed and conceptualized by Andrew Small and Steven Almond, the sculpture makes use of digital lighting, medical monitoring equipment and control devices and works like a heart-rate monitor when interacted with. When touched, the sculpture projects the user’s heart rate in pulses of red light and is an aesthetic treat to say the least.
