Floating Display

Challenge: Make a POV display using as few parts as possible

The idea started in 2019 by adding an LED to a flexible PCB actuator. Flapping this creates a single column of RGB light!

For the next version, a row of LEDs was added to display low-resolution images, using just a flexi-rigid circuit board, a magnet, and a holder. And the results were quite amazing, given the simplicity, as it almost looked like a tiny hologram.

Though it worked well, we had some engineering challenges to overcome to make it more reliable and robust. But after five years of research, we're very close to releasing a new model. Stay tuned!

Spherical Display

Challenge: Create a ball filled with LEDs

Transforming a circuit into a 3D sphere is quite challenging, especially when trying to make it small with hundreds of LEDs onboard.

This first prototype, is the size of a ping-pong ball, and has 242 Addressable RGB-LEDs and change color with motion.

We're working on engineering an even more attractive spherical display, so keep an eye out!
