YOUNG adults with learning disabilities at the Eastbourne campus of Sussex Downs College are enoying the benefits of a new “magic carpet”.

Foundation students are making full use of an interactive carpet which responds to their touch and stimulates the student’s reactions to light, sound and colour.

Rebecca Taylor, from Sensory Guru, the company which developed the carpet, said, “The students will be working towards understanding how their actions impact on the environment around them.

The ‘magic carpet’ uses infra-red sensors to monitor movement and make images respond to students’ touch.”
