In 2012, BREAKFAST began experimenting with Flip-Discs, a mechanical display technology that was originally developed in the 1960s for industrial signage. BREAKFAST developed a way to increase the speed the discs could flip and began creating large-scale installations using this modified technology. In 2017, BREAKFAST completely redeveloped and modernized the technology from the ground up, turning it into an unparalleled technological medium.
