Crystal

CRYSTAL is the Lego from Mars as Daan Roosegaarde calls it. Visitors use it to display public messages as a public art installation with which can be played endlessly.

CRYSTAL features hundreds of crystals of light which brighten up when touched. Through its futuristic design, it creates endless potential for play. Each Crystal contains LEDs that are wirelessly charged via a magnetic floor. Once visitors start adding, moving or sharing Crystals, the status of crystals changes from excited to bored, varying its brightness and frequency.

Roosegaarde has developed CRYSTAL to be open-sourced, allowing schools, high-tech companies and cultural organisations to develop new shapes and colours.

CRYSTAL is a permanent public installation at Natlab Eindhoven, open for public every night.
