SmartSlab is a digital video display for walls, floors, billboards and buildings. The patented SmartSlab technology combines aerospace composite materials with design inspired from nature. The honeycomb structure creates a strong and slim tile enabling it to be used directly as a building component for interior or exterior walls, ceilings or floors.
Inspired by the naturally efficient optics of the fly’s eye, the display uses hexagonal pixels (hexels) to effect a perceived image of 18% finer resolution than a regular square pixel. The hexels consist of red, blue and green LED’s, enabling it to emit a range of 16 million possible colours. To increase the resolution of the display, more panels can be combined. Four to six panels are suitable for the display of photos, at least nine for simple moving images and at least twentyfive for large scale high quality movies.
SmartSlab has a loadbearing capacity of 5 kN/m2 and can be used indoor as well as outdoor. It’s also fireproof and can therefore be used in public spaces. Finally it’s also “vandal”-proof and scratch resistant.
