A cutting-edge light projection system has been unveiled at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, in Sydney. Called the Tovertafel, or magic table, it brings interactive games and puzzles to life on flat surfaces.

Designed for people of all ages, including children and people with disability and their carers, the state-of-the-art installation reflects a council commitment to fostering an environment that embraces diversity and accessibility within the City of Bankstown.

Canterbury-Bankstown mayor Bilal El-Hayek said the device offers new opportunities for people of all abilities to connect, learn and enjoy shared experiences.

“This transformative technology has been designed to stimulate physical, mental and social activity, catering specifically to individuals with cognitive challenges such as autism, learning difficulties and dementia,” he said.

“The council has always been committed to providing equal access to educational and recreational resources for all community members at its nine library and knowledge centres.”
