Interactive Surfaces for people with cognitive impairments

‘Interactive surfaces’ may be a promising technology to stimulate and engage people in different ways. Until now interactive surfaces have been used in trade shows and fairs as advertisement or to increase the amusement level of the audience within the dance scene (http://www.vertigo-systems.de/). Interactive surfaces have similarities with computer games as they also can create a colorful virtual reality in which elements of gamification may ‘seduce’ people to play, move, respond or interact with it.
