TEPOS (Tangible Entertainment Projection System) is an entertainment/gaming center designed to be used specifically by the elderly. TEPOS is a multifunctional entertainment center that lets the elderly view images, play games and more.

TEPOS was designed by Siqi Liu and is hi-tech, yet surprisingly simple. The system features small controllers that are wirelessly charged on an induction charger. Images are displayed from the main tower onto a flat surface below. Viewing maps and pictures are great, but I'd be most excited for the gaming aspect of TEPOS. Lugging around a chess set and other cumbersome board games is a tall order for anyone -- especially the elderly. Being able to project games would encourage seniors to sharpen their minds while lightening their load.
