Performative prototype of U.Tile, an utile tile for the urban environment, where streets could become flexible and dynamic infrastructure instead of rigid and static spaces that are underused.

U.Tile responses to a lecture of an U.Stripe, that gathers real time data of pressure on it, speed, and GPS, and is then fed into the tile which responses with a color-coded language.

The performative model is only responding to pressure. Piezoelectric sensors and RGB LED´s were used to achieve this, along with an Arduino board and a Firefly on Grasshopper definition.
