Interactive Art for
the Maker in Everyone

Think the Lite-Brite of your childhood, but with ergonomic dials
that rotate endlessly through a spectrum of hundreds of colors.
(See it in play.)

To make is to participate.

To reject the role of passive bystander, uncertain patient, unruly child.

In this moment, you have their attention. Get their participation, too. The Everbright is an interactive art wall handmade for humans, and engineered for public spaces.

As visitors and colleagues use their hands to make art, they transform into active learners who integrate information on their own, engage in conversations, and produce novel and relevant ideas.

Yes, it looks like a giant light bright.  

Doing things no light bright can do.

For personal use, the giant lite brite of your childhood will always be a classic. But it doesn’t translate well for public spaces.

Hero Design, led by principle designer and neuroscientist Alan Rorie, reimagined the concept for libraries, museums, waiting rooms, hospitals, headquarters, and other public spaces.

Unlike a giant light brite with pegs and limited color selections, the Everbright has no removable parts. No setup. No clean up. It’s multigenerational and accessible to people with disabilities and special needs.

Unlike an interactive video wall, each board is handcrafted by artisans in Oakland, California, to be universally satisfying to humans.

Want to color inside the (brand) guidelines?

Run dynamic animations and choose from a dozen wirelessly-customizable interactive features to remove every obstacle to creativity, while making your brand manager happy.

We are all makers.

The moment belongs to everyone, of all ages and abilities.

Whether you’re planning a library, museum, hospital, waiting room, or headquarters, people will be coming here to do a job. (To learn, meet, wait, work, receive treatment.)

The job will be hard.

You want them to participate meaningfully.

When your staff can’t work any harder to engage people, redirect those people to the Everbright.

People want to make things. Let’s give them a way to make things in your space that doesn’t create work for your staff.

Satisfying transitions between colors

There’s something very satisfying to our hearts and minds when we can touch something and get an instant, colorful reaction. Turn the dials endlessly in either direction. Try to pinpoint the moment when red becomes orange becomes yellow becomes blue becomes purple. With more than 162 possible hues, the Everbright’s color dials delight without overstimulating–even in spaces with abundant natural light.

Felted finish handcrafted by artisans

The Everbright’s dials are sized and spaced for human ergonomics. We designed the dials so they would be easy to turn, and turn smoothly, for people of all ages and abilities. They are spaced to allow enough room for fingers in-between the dials, while also allowing for maximum pixel density. We really focused on accessibility in the design, so a toddler can turn the dial as easily as an adult. The Everbright also has a non-porous, high-density, velvety texture. Its rich, black surface is moisture-resistant and UV-resistant. Unlike painted surfaces, the color doesn’t chip away. An organic dye is infused into the material itself.

Customize the experience—wirelessly

Bring your own color palette. The Everbright is a platform. Create a ripple effect one day. The next day, watch how gradients blend and mix to create brand-new colors. Turns twists into starbursts. Incorporate your brand colors, showing a unique color spectrum such as pastels or autumn tones found in nature. Save designs to pick up where you left off. The Everbright resets itself throughout the day.

Engineered for durability in public spaces

All interior kinetic components have been streamlined and precisely engineered for public spaces like libraries, museums, hospitals, waiting rooms, and creative workspaces. A modular design means that in the uncommon event one pixel has an issue, all the other pixels can be incorporated into a design. Each Everbright comes with a three-year warranty on all replaceable parts, and lifetime technical support.

Straightforward installation

It’s self-contained, straightforward to install, and ready to use as soon as you plug it in. Ease of installation was important to us, and we designed it with the average facilities person in mind. No need to bring in an electrical engineer or an IT team. Everything is designed to come on and off from the back with a screwdriver.
