Tired of boring ol' LED displays? Check out this kinetic variant:
That's prototyping company Breakfast's new Flip-Disc Display, which uses physical discs colored black on one side and white on the other as "pixels."

Flip-disc displays, also called flip-dot displays, aren't new; they've been around since at least the early 1960s, when the Montreal Stock Exchange installed one, and in the 1970s American TV viewers saw them on "Family Feud." But what Breakfast has done is rigged the discs up to operate at close to 30 frames per second, wrangled them into full-bleed 17" x 17" modular panels that can be configured as you wish and created an app to simplify the display controls.
Until now…any business interested in purchasing a kinetic display would need to commission a specialized company to design and build a bespoke hardware and software solution. This requires a team of electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, software developers, industrial designers, project managers, and much more. Such an endeavor carries a high cost and can take years to develop. BREAKFAST's Flip-Disc Display System aims to make purchasing and utilizing a kinetic display as easy as buying a new refrigerator.
