"This is a versatile interactive tool that can be adapted to accommodate different levels of physical and cognitive ability. Largely suitable for children and young people but will also appeal to older teenagers. The interactive tabletop allows for educational opportunities such as spelling and reading challenges which encompass hand-eye co-ordination and object recognition. More challenging tabletop games include designing a city in which the user can include objects such as buildings to challenge topographical orientation and problem-solving. All these activities can be undertaken one to one or as a group activity to foster collegiality and teamwork.
The sandbox is an additional element that extends the activities to include more tactile input. Again games offer different levels of complexity and have broad enough themes to appeal to a range of interests. The quiz games require hand-eye co-ordination, scanning and searching, and problem-solving. For example, seeking out buried treasure requires spotting corners of the treasure chest sticking out of the sand then digging them out whereas digging out mines requires you to seek carefully then lift the mines out gently. The lakes and mountains, and volcano programmes are excellent opportunities for collaborative play as well as strategic problem-solving. These activities can also be augmented with additional items such as play figures to increase the challenges of the task undertaken.
Overall, this is a versatile tool that can be used for immersive play as well as for therapeutic interaction. The multi-sensory components increase engagement and attention as well as providing a flexible level of sensory stimulation."
