teamLab presents the “Christmas Tree of Wishes” from Nov 16 to Dec 25 at Canal City Hakata (address: 1-12, Sumiyoshi, Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City).

The tree will be illuminated with 50,000 full-color LED chips. The inside of the 6-meter wide and 9-meter tall column as well as the column surface will be adorned with the chips. With a real-time control system “Interactive 4D Vision” developed by teamLab, you can decorate the tree with your favorite ornaments. Using your smartphone browser to access and to select the ornaments and then swipe your phone toward the tree, you can decorate it. When the tree is completed with the decoration, Santa Claus will appear to collect the ornaments and carry them to the sky. Also, you can enjoy special effects such as lighting up the ribbons and stars and swinging the tree with the wind using the touch panel in the venue.

From 7 pm on Nov 16, a lighting ceremony using teamLab created app “Tsunagaru Candle” will be held on the B1F Sun Plaza Stage of Canal City. Singer song writer Chara will participate in the ceremony.
