The innovation has won awards in the Netherlands where it’s known as The Tovertafel.

The ceiling mounted device projects light games onto a standard table surface.

These games are interactive and immersive and can be played sitting down by a group of people.

They encourage social contact and respond to hand and arm movements designed to stimulate physical activity.

Banstead library was chosen for the Tovertafel as it is part of a working group to help make Banstead a dementia friendly village.
