What is Microsoft Expressive Pixels?

Microsoft Expressive Pixels provides rich authoring capabilities for users to make static images and animations that can be shared on LED displays and other digital devices such as a PC. It empowers people to create, express, connect and share animated visualizations in their own unique way.

We all express differently. To some, verbal expressions may be challenging or a non-preferred way of communicating. Often, a visual statement through creative and artistic expression can communicate as much, if not more, than words. Microsoft Expressive Pixels seeks to provide an inspiring experience for human expression and connection.
