Best piece of technology I’ve seen in a long time that has to do with LEDs. These little bots can create images by moving into the right place and changing to to right color.
In the video below you’ll be able to see the Sun, the Earth, the Moon and even a fish in the water.
The bots respond and adapt to physical change as well. As in an example stated by Wired, if a bot is picked up others will reform and recreate the image using a lower pixel count(DPI to be exact).
“HD screens and projections are impressive, but they are so familiar that they have lost the ability to generate excitement and attraction,” says Beardsley. “Our experience has been that there is a fascination factor, and people will ask why certain robots go in a certain direction as though the robots are alive.”
There is much more about these great 2-wheeled circles in the Wired article and another video clip is also available there.
Can’t wait to see these Pixel robots everywhere from restaurants and museums to amusement attractions and households all over. Great job Disney as always…
