Interactive Christmas Tree
In the true spirit of Christmas, some Águeda companies got together to create a community and interactive fir tree. This is set up next to the Town Hall and has been a great success with all ages.
An interactive installation was created, in the shape of a tall Christmas tree and a structure with 3 “Santa Claus” sacks hanging from it. The tree changes colour according to the colour of the Santa Claus sack people pull. So this interaction is achieved through the citizen’s intervention and participation.
Many of the town’s schools have already organized visits to the tree to let their pupils play and enjoy themselves.
This initiative was carried out in the scope of ALL (Águeda Living Lab) and the participating companies contributed the best of what they had in terms of material, creativity, ingenuity and knowledge, for this project to be a success.
This Christmas tree only became a possibility through the participation of all, in a true context of Smart Living.
