Pixel Track

Pixel Track is a prototype connected display system. The display uses a mechanical ‘scanning’ based system for updating pixels. This means that the display consumes no power while it remains static. As a side effect, the scanning technology changes the pixel form and the qualities and behaviours of the sign change. The mechanical nature of the surface means there is room for great flexibility in the form and material qualities of the display.

We’ve been using floats for layout pretty much since we left tables behind. It’s a quirky solution that can often cause troubles, but if you know what you’re doing, it works.

One interesting alternative to floats that people are turning to more and more lately is to set the display value of an element to inline-block. What does this do exactly? How is it like a float? How is it different? Let’s dive in and see what we can discover.

Interesting to see that we’re re-educating ourselves as browsers have become better and better over the years.
