Happy New Year 2018! This is the first fold of my recent idea for making pixel tessellations, called Butterfly Pixel Tessellation. The molecule is basically Shuzo Fujimoto’s Crowding Butterflies. Flaps can be lifted and folded in half in order to set a pixel into “on” state. Note that each square pixel is divided diagonally into two subpixels whose state can be set independently. This makes it possible to use subpixel rendering, a technique used on most modern computer and mobile device displays to enhance their apparent resolution. This allows for more detail than other molecules which use the same 3×3 grid per pixel such as the Four-Sink-Base or Crossed Box Pleat (CBP).
