Building with Light allows guests to work at one of four stations building with sanded acrylic TETRIS pieces, creating shapes and designs on top of a kaleidoscopic color-changing surface.

Guests use touch points to control colored LEDs as entire rows, columns, or individual points. There are eight rows of LED strips with sixteen individually programmable LEDs each. Light from the LEDs illuminates the acrylic building pieces and allows the guest to transmit light from block to block, giving them the feeling that they are actually building with glowing colored pieces.

The LED colors can be reset to default colors at any point.
