technichrome

imagine a screenless future, where digital data and online content will be fully integrated into every part of the built environment in a seamless way. typically, digital displays require complex manufacturing process. they are pre-designed and come in a fixed size frame which limits where users can show digital information. technichrome overcomes this and provides a radically new way to apply digital displays on almost any surface.

compared with traditional displays, technichrome display is simple to make. using a combination of pixel paints, users can paint displays onto things like walls, furniture, or any other surface they can think of. this disrupts the way we present digital information by opening up any surfaces to potentially become an active display for information. the displays can be painted in any shape, inviting more creative and novel configurations,which is difficult to achieve using current display technologies. the high flexibility of the material allow displays to be folded and formed into any shape. with technichrome, digital information will no longer constrained by rigid rectangular frames, enhancing our experience in the analog world.
