Wireless dominoes

A while back we linked a video which explored organic displays, screens composed by “smart”, independent and moving pixels.

The concept of “invisible” computers embedded in tiny units able to coordinate themselves for a bigger result is definitely fascinating. Today I saw this other inspiring project:

Esper Domino from jarashi on Vimeo.

It is quite similar to Siftables but the dominos attracted me more because the possibility of being mixed with normal, not smart, blocks.

Kudos to Arduino for enabling this experimentation.
