In the vein of table top interfaces with multitouch and gesture tracking, the trailer for the new game R.U.S.E. by Ubisoft is quite effective!

A floating chandelier


Wireless transfer power has been explored by artists and engineers, but designers Dana Gordon and Jean Baptiste Labrune brought it a step further! In their induction powered lamp, the closer the lamp gets to the induction the brighter the lamp becomes. So naturally, as you work, sleep, read near such a flexible lamp, you can just bring it closer or not to you to receive more or less light intensity. Tesla would be proud!
