Title:


    The Cyclone Display: Rotation, Reflection, Flicker and Recognition combined to the pixels.

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 16


Description:


    Most of us remember playing with colorful spinning tops when we were children. Here in our research, we made mechanical pixels with the spinning tops which introduces the mechanical display. This enables to enlarge the pixels without the direct lighting. Those mechanical pixels could be applied to make an ambient atmosphere in small or large space.

    We added some essentials factors to the tops such as flicker, projection, rotation speed. The combination enables us to make multicolored expression and to recognize the difference of rotating speed of the disks.

    This system should be able to contribute to a new kind of display engineering and interactive communication between display and humans.
