Reactive Touch

Tactile display buttons for automotive interaction

We created physical buttons with LCD screens to tackle the twofold problem of driver distraction and the need for flexible interaction with media applications. When the context changes, so do the buttons - it's a faster, safer solution to in-car interaction than touchscreens.

3D Printed Consumer Products

Fun in the shower and in your mailbox

Inspired by the desire to bring more fun to everyday interactions, we design 3D printable snap-together greeting cards, shower heads, doorstops, and other items that go a step beyond their normal counterparts.

Life Enhancement Products

Incremental products for a better life.

Combining traditional materials, electronics, and 3D printing, we've created products that make life just a little bit better. For example, our line of terrariums and adaptive air filters draw on NASA research to not just make a great home for plants, but also filter the air.

Electronics Prototypes

Rapid prototypes for unique applications.

We believe that businesses and consumers shouldn't be limited by traditional design and manufacturing processes. We utilize rapid prototyping techniques combined with widely available electronics to create small-run solutions for specific applications. For example, we created an internet-connected tip jar to allow customers to tip cashiers using Venmo.
