Company Designs Smart Bricks To Turn Your Regular Walls Into Interactive Ones

Modifying old-school bricks, design studio ‘Breakfast’ has showed a demo of a new technology called ‘Brixels’ – a compound for bricks and pixels – that are brick-like pieces of material that are controlled through software.

Brixels are designed to make it easier and faster to build large-scale installations based on spinning tiles or bricks.

The tiles can be customised in various shapes, sizes and materials, and Breakfast envisages them being integrated into buildings as walls, facades, railings, dividers or fences.

Brixel Mirror is a 19 foot wide by 6 foot-tall installation made up of 540 Brixels™, black on one side and mirrored on the other.
