"A valuable resource for customers using our service at Goscote Centre. It provides multiple benefits where our customers can explore the sensory environment via the use of interactive beams. Uploading photographs personal to the individual using the system creates a unique experience which can be comforting, whilst enhancing learning and play. The sessions are tailored and personalised to meet individual need which is an objective we aim to achieve throughout our day to day service delivery. We use our system in many ways e.g. to develop interactive skills within small groups to encourage the users to take turns to activate the beams. For customers who benefit from visual stimulation seeing images that change as a result of their actions develops their understanding of cause and effect."

"The system has been a very accessible and exciting for our pupils. It is very responsive to the smallest movement so even our more physical disabled pupils have been able to produce sound and contribute to a greater sound installation, for example, our iPad Orchestra. Pupils were very keen to give it a go and experiment with the sound effects”.
