Well-being in Every Dimension
short description
Create an immersive space where the walls and the ceiling are displays to support education, exercise, mediation, entertainment, & more.
3. Opportunity: Which pillar of well-being, and which aspect of that particular pillar, are being addressed by the idea? In what way does it influence a pillar? What type of individual and community would benefit from the idea?
The transformation of the space to into an experience-forward environment enables diverse well-being programming in support education, exercise, mediation, entertainment, and more. More passive experiential audio & video material would provide benefits between programming. This approach is inclusive of all individuals and communities and can focus on one or more pillars to meet demand and as resources can enable. This meets individuals where they are at in the context of a community environment.
4. Innovation: Why is your idea unique, novel, and/or impactful? What will the future look like if we’re successful in bringing your idea to life? How does the proposed solution differ from existing solutions addressing human well-being?
The combination of ideas is the innovation by bringing together elements found in movie theaters, museum exhibits, virtual reality, salt float tanks, and other deeply immersive experiences with a focus on well-being and enabling personal transformation. This experience-forward approach to the space creates value by focusing on the well-being of individuals and the community across in all pillars. The space itself becomes the destination and the catalyst for well-being.
5. Action Plan: Please justify and briefly describe the major steps needed to make this idea a reality. Does the technology and understanding exist now? Is it likely to exist in the next 3-5 years?
The core technology to support this exists today. Samsung’s modular “The Wall” ( panels enable a cohesive display across nearly any configuration. Ideally, displays would be installed full floor to ceiling (in reality, starting at the ceiling to as close to the floor as a specific space can make happen could achieve similar results). Ceiling display can use either this technology or a projection technology. All supporting technologies for displaying and/or streaming content already exists.

The modular furniture is one need that will require research and development. Tables that can vary in height (to shift from display to seating) are easy, but more innovative items (ex: modular cubes that can switch from displaying merchandise when open to securing merchandise and becoming seating when closed) will require prototyping and manufacturing.

With regard to milestones, the top priority would be the feature wall opposite of the entrance to the space. Converting this to a ceiling to floor display and pairing with the appropriate audio, video, and internet support would transform the space by itself and enable many instructional and informational activities. (This could be done in today.) The next priority would be the modular furniture and shifting of retail display to enable different event configurations. Finally, the remaining walls and ceiling would follow as the new layout options would fully enable the space.
