    Movie theaters might promise the illusion of 3-D, but this one-of-a-kind screen actually extends outward, using thousands of mechanically controlled foam cubes.

    Called Hyper-Matrix, the installation by media group Jônpasang is hypnotic to watch, even in video form. It was created as part of a Hyundai exhibition in Korea; you can watch the whole show below:

    The video was cool, but the cubes didn't add much other than a bit of novelty, IMO.
    Could be very cool if they up the resolution (more, smaller cubes) and extend the distance they are able to travel to give it more depth.

    Thanks for the vid, natr0n. :toast:

    It instantly reminded me of this cool little toy but on a grand scale.

    This coupled with OLEDs is probably the future cinema.

    Nice idea. If that stuff was liquid that'd be even more spectacular.
