Cliff Thier's Kickstarter brainstorm has already tripled its goal with 45 days to go.
"My invention, the iKeyboard, addresses the one drawback of a tablet computer — the impossibility of touch-typing on its virtual keyboard.
My solution is to provide the feedback missing from a virtual keyboard by 'grafting,' or piggybacking, a real keyboard onto the screen. My invention — the iKeyboard — will sit atop the virtual keyboard and be lightweight. It will add little bulk and not increase the footprint of the tablet. It will be easy and fast to deploy and remove.The iKeyboard will improve accuracy and typing speed, letting tablet users do real writing

NYC Dining Car

L train dining experience, Check out the video!
"On the first of May we hosted a "luncheon" on the L line of the New York City subway. The subway is a familiar place, providing a necessary means of transportation for many New Yorkers. Its stairwells, turnstiles, platforms, trains and unpredictable elements are all-too-familiar to its dedicated patrons. One begins to know the exact time of travel from one destination to another. One begins to intuit the conditions of a ride, anticipating smooth stretches and knowing when to brace for a jarring turn. Through a series of familiar gestures, presented in commonplace locations in unfamiliar ways, we set out to challenge a habitual experience."

Pale Blue Dot - Animation

Gear  |  Projects

Adam Winnik's thesis project, the animation based on Carl Sagan reading an excerpt from his 1994 book Pale Blue Dot.
"I have always thought of Carl Sagan's writings as "scientific poetry" since they lack the cold touch that science is often cursed for having. I think Sagan's words resonate more than ever, and will continue with each generation until the human species "wakes up". The first time I heard this excerpt from his book "Pale Blue Dot" it literally changed my life, and I hope it does for you too. "

Street soccer-themed foosball table by I Have Pop for Nike.
"This piece was created in the true spirit of street soccer and incorporates many of the unwritten rules associated with it. The game is either played one-on-one or two against two and the focus is not only on scoring the most goals, but also on showing who is the best. First one who plays a ball in between the legs of the opponent wins. "
