Kinetic Tiles / Interactive installation

Kinetic Tiles
Kinetic Tiles

Kinetic Tiles, modular construction units of physical tiles with kinetic motion, is motivated by the idea of an animated tile mosaic. Similar to decorating walls and surfaces with ordinary tiles, people can assemble and animate the Kinetic Tiles through a simple tangible interaction with the modules. It is expected that the Kinetic Tiles, as a new design and architecture material, will be used for ambient and pleasurable kinetic expressions to the surfaces of everyday objects and spaces. To see how the prototype works, please refer to our video clip at http://vimeo.com/34773482.
