Residents can get a $15-$65 discount on their monthly water bill. We—the DC Government—offer this discount to residents by reducing fees and the rate you’re charged for the water you use. Your discount is calculated based on your household’s income. You need to reapply in September of each year to continue receiving assistance.

What is an interactive floor?

An interactive floor or interactive floor projector is a projector with a built-in motion sensor that reacts to gestures and movements such as jumps, runs, hand waves, and more. Our versatile interactive floor projection system can be used to play games and also display branding and logos in a fun and unique way.

How does interactive floor projection work?

Simple! An interactive floor projection works by using an interactive projector with a built-in motion sensor to cast a projection onto the floor. The motion sensor will detect a user's gestures and movements while the interactive projector reacts with images, games, and more. Play football in a virtual playground, catch moving letters to spell out a word, and more. With over 100 games and themes, our interactive floor projection is sure to be a hit at any venue.

How do you install an interactive floor projector?

Our interactive floor projector system is mounted to the ceiling with the motion sensor facing downwards so it picks up movement and gestures underneath it. Depending on the ceiling will determine how the interactive projector is mounted for optimal motion sensing and projection of the games and themes.
