Maniacal Labs has brought a wide array of crazy LED displays to the public for several years with an overwhelmingly positive response from the public! The most popular pieces? Once that the public can interact with. Better yet, those that could be touched. So now we want to take all our experience and build something that people can touch, change, see, and hear. We call it the “Bixel Matrix”.
“Button” plus “Pixel” equals “Bixel”. A large matrix of these Bixels would make up an LED display in which every pixel can be pressed, changing the animation in real-time. The types of interactivity are practically endless and we would have the display programmed with a multitude of different options of course.
