The FTR - Living Pixels



Imagining a future where digital outputs can be made of living, physical things - living pixels is a digital display made of bioluminescent bacteria.


This new technology takes one of nature's most magical interfaces, bioluminescence, and applies it to the way in which we display information. 

It calls into question the static input and output method with which we currently communicate information, and aims to bring back an element of magic, unpredictability, and wonder in a world where we’re oversaturated by information fed through traditional digital outputs.

living pixels is a smart screen that reacts not just to user input but also to itself and to its environment. This allows it to deliver the same information in unexpected ways, bringing the surprise and delight found in nature's systems into our digital interactions.
