An interactive wall display made up of arcade buttons that act as pixels and respond to touch.
AnyPixel.js is an open-source software and hardware library that makes it possible to use the web to create big, unusual, interactive displays out of all kinds of things. The first instance of Anypixel is an interactive display wall in the lobby of Google New York made up of 5,880 arcade buttons. Each LED-lit button acts as a pixel, so that images, words, and designs can be rendered. The entire wall is interactive at all times, reacting as you press the buttons. The software runs on the web, and the software and hardware are all open source.

“It’s big and messy and mesmerizing and fun. It recaptures a little bit of the analog charm that more primitive displays evoke, while giving them 21st-century digital oomph.”
