Street Pixel is an interactive pavement that transforms urban spaces through play by replacing traditional paving with smart, connected, giant interactable pixels.
Simply step - or roll! - onto Street Pixels to activate colourful lights, sound and interactions. Play favourite childhood games like hopscotch or whack-a-mole, make music with Street Piano, or simply sit back and watch as the pavement animates with light, colour and music.
Street Pixel is hardware graffiti; designed to reinvigorate the relationship between people and their cities by transforming the street below into opportunities for connection and play using creative technology, game design and a sustainable approach to materials and electronic hardware. It brings together games, architecture, electronics, societal well-being, and a desire to change the urban landscape for the better.
Street Pixel injects joy and life back into the urban landscape, encouraging everyone to step outside their routine and embrace their playful side. From kids to grownups, local residents to visiting tourists Street Pixel brings people together.
Street Pixel is designed and produced by Biome Collective and commissioned by Playable City Watershed with support from UNESCO City of Design Dundee. Find out more here.
