E-Spirit / Digital interactive spiritual practice


Since modern society has a fast pace of life and work, it is difficult for people to spare specific time to go to temples or churches. What people need is a flexible and private religious space, and a way that enables them to better concentrate on cultivation. E-Spirit brings an experience of spiritual practice based on digital interaction. It consists of an illumination projector and a brainwave monitor. The projector puts image onto the wall which creates a religious atmosphere. The brainwave monitor measures the user's concentration in real time. With the rising of user’s concentration, the image on the wall changes into Buddha or cross.
