Video chat app maker ooVoo wanted to stand out at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), so they built a gigantic array flip-dot panels and got them working as one display. Hack A Day interviewed ooVoo and found out that each panel is a 28×14 grid of discs. ooVoo put 189 panels together, creating a wall-sized display with a whopping 588×126 resolution.

The company also rigged facial recognition systems that allowed people to control characters on display. But perhaps the display’s most attention-grabbing aspect wasn’t the visuals but the audio. The 74,088 mechanical pixels made quite the ruckus.
