Foldaway Pixel


CES 2020

Mercedes Stories


Foldaway Pixels are robotic modules that can generate different motion patterns. They have a compact size and a foldable design that allows to create morphing surfaces. Such feature is used by Mercedes-Benz in the show-car presented @ CES2020

10 years of research

Why Foldaway Technology


Foldaway technology is the result of over 10 years of research into manufacturing and design of miniaturized robots.

It takes advantage of patented origami designs for realizing lightweight, high-precision foldable robots that, embedded in a joystick, interact with your fingers

New interactive media


A new generation of advertisement billboard is realized thanks to Foldaway Pixels.
Robotic billboards are conceived for companies that want to convey “high-tech” sensations in Industrial fairs / Expositions



A new generation of advertisement billboard

Robotic Billboard


A new generation of advertisement billboard is realized thanks to Foldaway Pixels. Robotic billboards are conceived for companies that want to convey “high-tech” sensations in Industrial fairs / Expositions

Foldaway Robotic Billboards are composed by several Pixels that animate companies’ logos, videos or product ../images
To be used in Industrial fairs / Expositions/ Headquarters Ideated for tech. companies that want to improve their brand recognition Catches more attention than traditional Poster Interacts with the viewers


Product offer


- rental (rent up to 30 pixels in a custom arrangement)
- purchase (buy modules arrangement)
- request customization (request custom number/features/sizes for the robotic billboard)

Animations are released with the HW.
