Flip Matrix builds off STEAM education to excite young people to pursue tertiary study within STEAM. Taking an ‘over-engineered’ approach, Flip Matrix puts STEAM on a pedestal by showcasing its capabilities.
Users interact with a mechanical flip display through hands-on coding inspired by existing applications such as Scratch, Cubetto and Project Bloks.
Flip Matrix is designed to be modular for scalability and portability so it can be used as a pop-up installation at events such as career fairs and university open days

This prototype is a proof of concept for a much larger installation piece.
Projected graphics created using Unity 3D is used to simulate a much larger grid of physical flip panels.
