BendDesk is a Workstation and Multitouch Computer in One

BendDesk is a multi-touch desk environment that seamlessly combines a vertical and a horizontal surface with a curve into one large interactive workspace.

Bend Desk

The system uses a combination of two projectors shining on the surface from underneath and behind. A series of LEDs around the edges of the display bathe it in infrared light. Three cameras with IR filters peer at the underside of the acrylic surface and detect touches by distinguishing variances in the IR pattern through a process called Frustrated Total Internal.

A Ring That Gives You Time On Your Hands

Ring Clocks are made of 316L surgical stainless steel stacked with three encircling bands for displaying the hour, minutes, and seconds

Ring Clock

Whether you’re averse to wearing things on your wrist, or you’re just looking for an interesting way to start a conversation at parties, the Ring Clock is the timepiece for you. 

The Ring Clock sits on your finger in an inert state until you spin the outside ring, at which point the time is revealed by the correct numbers lighting up with LEDs. This keeps battery use to a minimum, which, as the battery only lasts two hours before needing to be recharged via its Qi wireless power charger pad, is a good thing.
