Soundbeam and Beamz

“It’s the most natural state that a child’s ever in, when they’re playing. It creates happiness, contentedness, you see relaxation, you see smiles. And it’s also the way they can communicate, it’s the way they can express themselves.” Kathryn, children’s hospice care team

Beamz allows children in children’s hospices to make a sound simply by breaking the beam, using any part of their body. It’s great fun and means that a child with terminal illness or disabilities is able to express themselves and be creative, even making their own music, which they can record and their families can keep.

It can be played on an iPad, Eyegaze or a computer with special mice, so it is accessible for anyone, no matter what their ability. Children with severe disabilities can even operate a Soundbeam using their breathing!

The Tech Trunk - new for 2019

The 10,000 children who currently use hospice services represent only one fifth of the children who require palliative care in the British Isles. These children need our help, so we put our heads together to think of a way to take our magical technology to these children.


Interactive Entertainment Hub

Our Interactive Entertainment Hubs are the perfect solution for children in hospices who love gaming, but are unable to use the typical controllers. 



Mobile Magic Carpet

For children whose lives are limited by their conditions, the Mobile Magic Carpet brings the outside world in, transporting them into a world of make believe.



Even for children with the most profound disabilities, the Lifelites Eyegaze gives them the chance to communicate and play – just like other children.



We pack our special iPads with a whole host of apps to enable children with disabilities to communicate, play, be creative and have fun.  


Special mice

Our special mice make it possible for children with disabilities to have the rare opportunity to control something for themselves.


Makey Makey

Using a Makey Makey to turn anything that conducts electricity into a mouse helps children of all abilities to join in the fun.
