Pavilion of Knowledge RFID + Video Detection + Sensors and LED

The 13 sub-projects needed the expertise combination of hardware and software for such things as detect colours in real-time, sensor activation, I/O buttons to manage leds, RFID sensors to control videos, auto-dialing telephones telling stories.

It was one of the biggest projects at the Interactive Science Museum of Lisbon and certainly one of the most interactive exhibitions for the little ones.
