Overview: SpaceTop is a technological and design elucidation that merges 2D and spatial 3D interactions into a single desktop workspace. Extending the traditional desktop interface with the use of interaction technology and visualization techniques, transitioning between 2D and 3D manipulations is a breeze. SpaceTop allows users to type, click, draw in 2D, and directly manipulate interface elements that float in the 3D space above the keyboard.
As the designers say, “It makes it possible to easily switch from one modality to another, or to simultaneously use two modalities with different hands. We introduce hardware and software configurations for co-locating these various interaction modalities in a unified workspace using depth cameras and a transparent display.”
Designers: Jinha Lee, Alex Olwal, Hiroshi Ishii, and Cati Boulanger
Overview: The Bella smartphone concept, immodestly self-described as “the most beautiful phone,” is focused on being highly customizable for the discerning user. Unlike other unibody designs, Bella features a curved metal frame wrapped around a polycarbonate body in a unique 3-dimensional way. This offers three 3 levels of customization between the main body, metal frame, and other accents including the rotary knob used for navigation and volume control.
SPECS: 4k edge-to-edge OLED display, tissue-conductive audio technology, ultra-thin Piezo film speakers, 8mp front and 16mp rear cameras, 4k video recording with 60fps and 240 fps

Overview: Pet cameras make up for candid home videos, and adding to the brigade is the Gori. What makes this one different from the existing lot of devices is that its got a leash integrated into the design. A very wise integration if you ask us. It helps take videos while you walk your pet and when away too. Just place it in its cradle and its ready to use.
Designers: Chan Hong Park, Hyunwoo Jang and Ga-ryeong Seo
