The first super-speed, real-time flip-dot display.

For TNT's newest crime-solving show Perception we revived a sign technology of yesteryear to create an anagram-finding experience on the streets of New York. Made up of over 40,000 physical dots spinning from black to white at 15 times faster than originally designed to, the screen not only reflects back a unique image of anyone walking by, but allows you to actually hear those movements thanks to its mechanical nature.

A big thanks goes out to Cinder genius Stephen Schieberl and sound superhero Joseph Fraioli.
