Flick Pixels are revolutionary ultra-thin actuators that can be applied to almost any material - textiles, paper, metals, plastics - to create ultra-lightweight screens and active wallpaper - displaying data, social media messages and animated patterns.

The aim of the Flick Pixels project was to develop 'wallpaper for the Internet of Things'. A process of combining and evolving micro-robotics, control algorithms, advanced manufacturing techniques and material crafts led to the invention of these flexible ultra-thin pixel actuators.
