As their write-up puts it, “Every tech company has side projects and Solid State is no different.” On the contrary, most tech companies don’t create a giant interactive wall using 2,040 RGB LEDs.

The concept for RIO (Rendered-Input-Output) was inspired by Google’s AnyPixel project, but after considering using their library, the team instead chose to engineer something in-house. Their solution employs Slack as in interface for passing GIFs and video from the Internet to the display, which uses a Raspberry Pi to control a bunch of WS2812B LED strips.
