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.
