Hotel room:
This room features a full-sized window that lets daylight flood in, yet also allows guests to partially or completely obscure the view with soothing patterns such as the foliage of trees.

Hospital room: At first sight, the hospital room looks like a typical bedroom, with a low-level bed that's comfortable to get into and out of, together with soft mood lighting. It even has a Philips wake-up lamp to help sleepers wake up more naturally. However, as soon as a doctor comes in, the room transforms itself into an equally luxurious consulting room. The bed rises to a height more suitable for the doctor to examine the patient and one wall of the room transforms into a projection screen on which patient records can be displayed. Using a hand-gesture based user interface similar to that used to control the hotel room window, the doctor can then access specific files to show the patient the results of surgery.

Pregnancy room: Designed to make expectant parents as relaxed and in-touch with their unborn child as possible, the pregnancy room offers them a new experience in fetal ultrasound imaging. Gone are the doctor's couch, intimidating ultrasound equipment and VDUs. Instead, there's a comfortable chair for the mother, a simple wrap-around stomach belt to perform the ultrasound, and a curved womb-like sphere in which 3-dimensional images of the unborn child are projected. Simple hand motions across the ultrasound belt control the direction from which the image is viewed.
