When robots finally assert their dominance over the human race, we imagine the hive mind overlord will probably look something like the creation in the video below. Hyundai crafted a unique three-sided video screen composed of small Styrofoam blocks. Each block can travel on a horizontal axis thanks to its own pneumatic piston and logic board. The result is a massive creation called the Hyper-Matrix, which can double as a projector screen. The blocks can be computer controlled to create just about any design or work in conjunction with whatever video is being played on the surface.

The finished product is as beautiful as it is terrifying. We can just imagine the cubes adopting the guise of the giant, disembodied baby face from the Matrix trilogy just before the Sonata sedans of the world stand up in revolt. Check the food stores in your basement/bunker, and then check out the Hyper-Matrix in action in the video below.

      Would have been better if they'd stayed with the cube patterns. The new age crap that made up the back 90% of this was pretty crappy.

      Frankly some of you have no clue what it takes to create these animations with individual moving blocks that each have it's own piston and ecu. It's frankly amazing. This was not 3D. It was real. It's genius. Get your head out of your ass!

      Fan of Hyundai or not, you'd be lying if you weren't impressed.

      How is that even close to terrifying? It was awesome and really well done.

      Something similar is being done with light behind perforated metal cladding at City Center in Las Vegas.This is still rather cool. Look forward to seeing it applied to some next-gen hotel along The Strip.

      The amount of work it takes to get all of the video and animations just right is ridiculous. Truly amazing and beautiful!

      I'll say it was entertaining, and the amount of work that went into assembling such a large bank of actuators must have been huge. That said, there's no disguising the noise that all those actuators make, and therefore I think the overall concept was more complicated than the end results warranted. Still fun to watch though.

      Have to admit, it was pretty good.

      Must be mind blowing to be sitting in the audience experiencing this!
