Springing to Life with VT Pro Design's Kinetic Wall

Technology and nature coincide in harmonious new ways with 'Reach.'

The Creators Project team goes inside the Future Forward  interactive installations with the commissioned artists.

At the first Future Forward event in New York City, we get close up and personal with VT Pro Design's kinetic wall installation titled Reach.  We see how this "hybrid" living wall—inspired by the all-new Prius's eco-heritage—springs to life, reacting uniquely to each audience interaction. With dramatic arm movements, visitors influence how the tiles tilt and change the accented colored lights. What looks like a magical display of sorcery is really the skillful work of programing, design, and engineering to marry the potential for technology and nature to coincide in harmonious new ways.

The Future Forward event series presented by the all-new Prius took place in three cities: New York, Chicago, and in LA. Learn more about the series here
