HEXI is a responsive wall made of 60 moving modules by Canada-based Thibaut Sld.
Its overall shape fluctuates, mirroring our movements.
“The hexagonal panels situated on the surface of the interior space use real-time data collected from motion-tracking technology to decode and interpret the gestures and actions of a person within close range. Using this feedback, the kinetic wall behaves in sync with the proximate participant; walking passed, jumping near or waving a hand in the direction of the ‘HEXI’ wall induces a undulating swell and surge of independent motion.”

each panel is individually fitted with the mechanics, sending real-time data about proximate movements
