An innovative, modular approach to LED displays appearring at Bay Area Maker Faire –
Every time we look at computer screen, millions of pixels of light disappear into our work, our correspondence, or our entertainment. Imagine if you could capture those dots of light and scoop them up as you would grains of sand on the beach. Puzzlemation explores this idea, by dividing the digital display into pixels you’re free to pick up and re-arrange. It can be used to create things as diverse as modular animated signs, to a uniquely challenging dynamic puzzle. First and foremost, it is a tool that lets you create animated light displays of any size and shape for whatever applications you can dream up.
The application that come to mind are numerous and intriguing – from games to commercial use and most definitely interactive art installations – Puzzlemation – A Dynamic Tiled display
