thanks for your reply.i have been thinking about this more and came across the field of fluidic logic and specifically this bi-directional fluidic flow control valve:https://www.google.com/patents/US3486517?dq=fluidic+valve&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi_6Z2_ovnOAhVLmx4KHZaYAvkQ6AEIMzADif one would try to use this valve air would constantly flow our of all valves, but one could control if it comes out exit A or B, A being your ballon for example and B being some exhaust pipe.the only question now is how to control the control lines27 and 28.you are right solenoids are too expensive, and also if one would want to use water air or liquid control would be better.
Hmmm, not really sure. I do see what you mean about the speed, it would actually be great and I did think about it for a little bit but gave up for simplicity's sake. At some points I started thinking about electromagnets (solenoids), these could do it all since you could cycle much faster (electricity vs air). Then you don't really need to latch since you could virtually open multiple at once. The problem is that the cost skyrockets defeating the purpose. Let me know if you come up with something!

very very clever. very inspiring.i was wondering if you had any input on what one could change in your design to lock each location. what i mean is apply control pressure to x and y once, which locks something in place, then once pressure is released this something remains in place and the air keeps on flowing. this would allow for a faster control for the other pixels.maybe a steel ball gets pressed again a magnet, and with a 3rd control air flow the ball could be forced away from the agent?
