Description: The Luminea Bubble Tube is a great starting point for any sensory space! Much more than a bubble tube, the Luminea Bubble Tube bursts with light and movement grabbing the user's attention. The Luminea Bubble Tube allows the user to create infinite environments taking advantage of resources such as colors, reflections, floating objects and interactivity. It is completely scalable and can be incorporated into growing and developing multisensory environments. Connect with products like the Luminea Fibers, Lumina Lamp, or Luminea Planet and watch them light up simultaneously or use them independent of one another!
How To Use It: The default setting is auto mode. In this mode the Luminea Bubble Tube turns on and the colors change without any controller needed, simply plug it in! The Luminea Bubble Tube is also compatible with many different control devices (not included) that allow the user to interact with light like never before! Compatible controllers include:
Standard Wired Switch: Insert any standard wired switch (3.5 mm/ ⅛-in) into one of the three different switch inputs ( “auto”, “1,2,3”, “bubble icon”) on the back of the bubble tube. Inserting the switch into the “auto” input allows the user to turn the bubbles and colored light on and off with the hit of a switch. Inserting the switch into the “1,2,3” input allows the user to scan through colors with each hit of the switch. Inserting the switch into the “bubble icon” allows the user to turn just the bubbles on and off with the hit of a switch. Try the Wobble Switch or Buddy Button!
Button Six: Press one of the six colored buttons to change the color of the light, inside the bubble tube, to the corresponding color of the button that was pressed.
Button 1: Control your Luminea Bubble Tube without any wires! Five different modes allow users to interact with the Luminea Bubble Tube in a variety of ways!
Android Tablet: Download the free Luminea App (available in the Google Play Store) and interact with the Luminea Bubble Tube like never before! Try drawing your finger through a maze; when your finger is on the path the bubbles and lights turn on but when your finger leaves the path the bubbles and lights turn off. Try touching a small target on a dartboard or a clown's big red nose; when you successfully hit the target, the bubbles and lights will turn on! Watch the video to see more activity ideas. Requires the Luminea Router.

Adaptability: Target a wide range of therapeutic skills with the Luminea Bubble Tube:
Attention & Focus: The sight and sound of the bubbles and lights moving in the tube will grab the user’s attention and help with focus.
Cause-Effect: Target this skill by using the Luminea Bubble Tube with a switch or the App. The automatic response of the bubbles moving and the lights changing will help establish a cause and effect relationship with the switch action.
Communication: The effects of the Luminea Bubble Tube lend to exchanges such as “turn it on”, “change the color”, “make it go”.
Social Skills: Sharing, taking turns, and compromise are just a few of the skills that can be targeted while interacting with the Luminea Bubble Tube.
Fine Motor and Visual Perception: Use the Luminea Bubble Tube in conjunction with the Lumina app to target skills such as fine motor precision, finger isolation, and visual discrimination skills.
