The History

In 2012, BREAKFAST began experimenting with Flip-Discs, a mechanical display technology that was originally developed in the 1960s for airport signage. BREAKFAST re-engineered the hardware and software to increase the speed the discs could flip and began creating connected, interactive installations with the medium.

In 2017, BREAKFAST completely redeveloped and modernized the technology from the ground up, turning it into an unparalleled technological medium.
