This is an interactive, three-dimensional Christmas tree that uses Interactive 4-D Vision to display dynamic visuals based on what the audience around the tree decides to adorn it with. Participants can decorate the tree from their smartphones by adding ornaments or animated light displays filled with their hopes and wishes. When the tree is fully decorated, Santa Claus appears and carries off everyone’s wishes to the sky.

    Participants can use their smartphone's browser to access a range of ornaments from which they can pick one which catches their eye. By swiping it in the direction of the Christmas Tree of Wishes, they can send their selected ornament to the tree and see it actually appear as a decoration. And so, this giant Christmas tree of light, decorated with everyone's heart and soul, becomes the only tree of its kind in the whole world.
