Interactive Tiles

The I-Quad uses tile shaped LED electronic boards held together by a simple frame and interacts with external devices via USB or wireless. Each tile is capable of a low-res, almost dot matrix-like resolution. Essentially anything can be displayed across these tiles; from communication, entertainment, even ambient lighting.

I like the idea in concept. Wireless connectivity makes it quite useful say if I wanted to leave a note to a family member – a few key strokes on my computer and voila, message appears on the board. I’m not keen on its size because it seems unnecessary. A smaller board with a far more dense pixel resolution would have been much more intriguing to me.

    The girls are better looking. How about displaying them?

    The resolution doesn’t seem to be very good.

    This would be nice in classrooms. Make it with a surface that you can write on, and the teachers can show slides, etc, writting on them.

    Real nice!

  • wow, new techboard, thats just great

    Ya I’m really curious, why dots? They seem so big and far apart. Smaller board sure, nobody in a classroom could see it then. The size is fine, the resolution for its intended use is horrible. And i-again, really? Another f*[email protected] i-product?! Sorry but even the packaging looks like it was designed by “Apple of California.” I like the modular idea of this on paper, but if it were to really look like that when I put it up, I would box it right up and send it back.

    I didn’t get how they can led that emit black. Maybe I’m just stupid, but this concept looks flawed

    I wonder how you determine where to place the ‘objects’ on screen…

    Can you draw on it too?

  • tom says:

    does it have to looked bubbled like that? could you make the image on the display more clear? make it look real?
