The 'Living Cell' installation lets you experience what it feels to be in a human cell. Using a Kinect camera and a projector, the installation allows you to interact with an accurate cell. You can play with the cell itself and activate different parts just by stepping on them. Just like regular cells, the installation's projection can die and be replaced by a new one. In addition, you can add things like glucose, nicotine and UV radiation to the cell to see what happens. The Living Cell reacts appropriately and shows you exactly what happens.

Interactive design agency CLEVER°FRANKE created the Living Cell installation for the European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing. The agency made the cell visualization as a permanent exhibition for visitors to the institute's building.
