Hyper-Matrix, the Movie Theater of the Future

Make no mistake, what you see is not a digital projection. It's the real deal: a movie screen and two additional walls comprised of thousands of small cubes, each attached to its own stepping motor. A carefully choreographed routine makes the cubes go in and out, creating rippling and pulsating grids. Sort of like being trapped inside a surreal Tetris nightmare. It's not hard to imagine the benefits of this technology when a movie is projected on top of the grid of cubes.
