About the Project: Solas is a project specifically designed for children in isolation wards in hospital. It uses the Flash Communications Server to enable video conferencing, chat and sms texting, and also contains tools for creativity. It was set up and is moderated by the Centre for Health Informatics in Trinity College Dublin, and is installed in a kiosk in the isolation ward in Crumlin Children’s Hospital. I was responsible for the interface designs, which you can see in the demo above.
