In this paper, we present a tiled display system made out of
hexagonal cardboard screens with no visible bezel. Use of a
bezel-less hexagonal form factor allows users to build
larger multiform displays out of smaller tiles. Individual
display tiles can be picked up to allow tangible interactions
with physics simulations that are rendered onto the
individual tiles. The corners of each hexagon are marked
with invisible infrared retro-reflective dots. Computer
vision is used to track the 3D location and orientation of
these tiles. Our prototype projects back images onto each
individual display. This allows for a seamless interaction
experience that anticipates wireless Organic LED
