Eye Candy: 'Hyper-Matrix' Moving Wall Made Out Of Thousands Of Individually Controlled Boxes

September 17, 2012


This is the Hyper-Matrix moving wall from media group Jonsprong on display at Hyundai's Motor Group Pavilion in Korea. I could get high and watch it all day (and just might!).

Size of the cubes is 30x30cm and are made of styrofoam. All parts are driven by 3375 customized actuators and stepping motors. As a communication system were used both RS-485 and CAN, which provide high-speed data transfer. CAN bus (for controller area network) is a message-based protocol, designed specifically for automotive applications but now also used in other areas such as industrial automation and medical equipment.

Could you imagine if we all had these in our houses? We'd all be f***ing crazy people. "I'm already banging a crazy person." That's not what I meant. Seriously though, your partner is nuts. That's why I never hang out anymore. That and your B.O. -- you smell like a foot-long chili cheese dog with onions. "You're afraid you'll try to eat me?" I'm terrified I will.

Hit the jump for three videos: a short demo, a long demo, and the making of.

Thanks to davie and Kyle, who prefer to watch walls move the old fashioned way: on acid.

    Ok so this was like 8-bit acid minus the brain damage, so pretty cool but it sounded like a massive dot matrix printer having an orgy or something, that must have been insanely loud, I pity the crowd, and the fool.

  • Did I forget to take my medication again?

  • Minecraft did it first!

    Collaborative motors hooked up to a computer machine that push/pull foam block thingies on a frame. Slightly more complex than LEDs, but it's still really awesome. :D

    It looks like the worlds most expensive car commercial.

    Looks like there was a broken panel on the left wall.
