Lava Live!

Sensory Lava is a simple calming and relaxing visual touch responsive app for people of ALL ages. Sensory Lava generates lava and bubble style slow moving, calming visual effects. The bubbles appear to have a life of their own and flow around the screen slowly and randomly, in a lava lamp style.

Click the app icon, which will open and launch the Sensory App in a new browser tab.

Clicking or tapping the app launch screen will load app and fill the screen or window.

If the app fills the window, maximise the window to full screen using your browser menu or settings, and the app will run as full screen.

Press ESC key, click/tap the X button to remove the app from full screen, and it will continue to run in its tab or window. Close the tab or window if you are finished.

User Guide

By pressing the silver buttons it is possible to change colors, change the number of bubble groups, change the general speed of movement and change the “diffusion”. The bubble edges of Lava are fully touch reactive, responding according to how close a bubble it to the touch.

Sensory Lava contains no adverts, requires no subscription and collects no user information. Perfect to beam to a large screen in a Sensory room or use as a relaxing, soothing night light.

Make sure your Windows PC, or Apple Mac has either the Google Chrome Browser or new Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser installed. Your Chromebook will already have the Chrome browser. Below we use our SandBox app as an example, which applies to all our apps.
