Interactive ice rink

Together with the TU/e Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI), the TU/e Christmas Market will develop the first interactive ice-ring! The light installation in MetaForum will be used to follow ice-skaters with colored light and to show curling results live on screen. To try this yourself, we have arranged over 200 skates, to make sure everyone can have a try...
The TU/e Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) was established in 2010 to investigate novel intelligent lighting solutions that will become within our reach by the large-scale introduction of LED technology, with a special emphasis on how these new solutions might affect people. We do this in collaboration with departments of the TU/e and partners in the public and private sectors. The lighting research performed at ILI is producing unique know-how and a technological head start for the participating parties, the Brainport Region, and as part of Europe.
