Blackdust developed a system of lightweight, modular LED display strips for use in a novel information display. The strips can be connected together in series to form large animated surfaces in a variety of shapes.

The display was developed for "Vital Signs," an interactive news display proposed for the Liberty Science Center. The display is a constantly flowing Möbius strip of breaking science news. Text flows around the display surface, changing to color images at projected surfaces along the display.

Blackdust also developed an interactive controller to enable visitors to select news stories for display.
