Aegis Hyposurface is an elastic architectural surface made up of small metal plates that are controlled pneumatically and react in real time to electronic stimuli from the environment (movement, sound, light, etc). Driven by 896 pneumatic pistons, the dynamic ‘terrains’ are generated as real-time calculations.

The Aegis Hyposurface effectively links information systems with physical form to produce dynamically variable, tactile ‘informatic’ surfaces. Aegis is perhaps the world’s first such dynamic screen.Any digital input (microphone, keyboard, movement sensor) can trigger any physical output (a wave or pattern or word.)
